It is a genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae, native to Southern Africa. They produce large, daisy-like composite flowerheads in brilliant shades of yellow and orange, over a long period in summer.
They are often planted as a drought-tolerant groundcover. as very short creeping underground stems (i.e. rhizomes) and forms smaller clumps. Its leaves are borne in a rosette at ground level (i.e. they are radical). Its ‘petals’ (i.e. ray florets) are often yellow with a reddish central stripe and a black base but maybe orange, or bronze or red.
