Olearia cordata, Family Asteraceae, is an aromatic, slender shrub growing to 2 m, with leaves alternately scattered along the stem. The stems and leaves are densely covered with hairs and glands, making the plant slightly rough and sticky to the touch. Flowers are daisylike and mauve to deep blue with yellow centres (Lander, 1992).
