Daisy Shrubs

Daisy Shrubs are flowering daisy plants that are either evergreen or deciduous. This means they either keep their leaves or they shed them at the end of the summer. There are also some shrubs that only lose their leaves in very cold weather. They are referred to as semi-evergreen shrubs.

The difference between daisy shrubs and  trees is that they are not quite as tall as trees, usually not higher than 2 m (6.6ft). Shrubs also have multiple stems.
Plants of many species may grow either into shrubs or trees, depending on their growing conditions. A good example of this is the Daisy Bush or Olearia. In its natural habitat in New Zealand it can grow into the size of a tree.

Small, low shrubs, that don’t grow taller than 2 m (6.6 ft) tall, are often called subshrubs or bushes.
