Tick Berry Flowers Tick Berry Tick Berry Location

The bright yellow Crysanthemoides monilifera, which means “yellow flower bearing a necklace” (thanks to the green-red berries that grows below the blooms) is a beautifully bright shrub that can grow up to 2m in height and blooms all year round, with the most blooms being seen around Autumn. Due to the edible little fruits that it produces this flower is easily spread through bird and animal droppings, helping to coat most of the mountain side in these daisy-like flowers.

Although pretty to us, this plant is seen as a nuisance in other countries due to its fast growing nature. All we know is that it adds much needed colour in the winter months and a great addition to your home garden!
