A native of South Africa where it is found growing in sunny grassland, this deciduous plant does best in a sunny spot with well drained soils, where it will form a vigorous, long-flowering carpet of colour throughout summer. Forming a basal rosette of leaves, it sends up sprays of daisy-like pink, magenta, violet or pink coloured flowers with yellow centres from late spring to autumn. When happily settled, it may self-seed and produce new plants.
- Garden care: Try to avoid excessive winter wet and dead-head if you dont want it to spread.
