A rarely grown, perennial species from South Africa in the Asteraceae family. Produces clumps of deep green, spikey foliage that are felted underneath and large, pale yellow, daisy flowers. Fantastic plant for bees and other insects. Flowering June to September. Height 60 cm. Very well-drained soil in sun to light shade. It has proven fully hardy with us in south west Scotland.
Sow from March to June. Cover seed thinly, press in gently and keep top of compost from drying out. Keep pot warm at 15 to 20°C until germination, then move to somewhere cooler.
Carefully prick out seedlings when they have developed true leaves and are large enough to transplant to individual pots to grow on.
