Family asteraceae
Life cycle annual

detailed seed-starting info below

Wildflower native to South Africa, where it is used as a traditional medicinal herb. It grows naturally in sandy soils, and is best planted in groups, by itself or mixed with other spring-flowering wildflowers. Not the most refined plant, but I'll see what it does in our garden.

We're just trying this plant for the first time this year; it hasn't found a permanent place in our gardens yet. (click here for a full list)
