Discuss Euryops pectinatus (Grey-leaved euryops) with other Shoot members.
I planted an euryops pectinatus last year and really like this plant. Unfortunately the severe frosts that we have had has left the plant looking very grey and withered. Is it likely that this plant will have died or is there a a chance that it will grow again from the base?
