The showy yellow daisy flowers appear in summer. Full sun (coastal) to light shade in well-drained soil. Hardy to at least the mid 20's F. From the Eastern Cape Providence of South Africa. A great little container plant. Keep dry as possible in winter - plants growing in small pots with well-drained soil can tolerate winter rains.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit.
