Olearia axillaris is one of Perth's most iconic coastal shrubs, with distinctive grey foliage and a height of up to 3 metres. Its size seemingly defies the fact that it is a member of the Daisy (Asteraceae) plant family, with small yellow flowers being produced between March and August. Olearia axillaris will also flower opportunistically at other times of the year, including shortly after summer rains. It occurs naturally on coastal limestone and sand dunes. Curiously, Olearia axillaris is believed to have been eaten as a herb by Willem de Vlamingh and his fellow Dutch sailors when they anchored off Rottnest Island in the 1690s.
