This striking daisy brings brilliant colour to the Glasshouse Bays.
Comprising approximately 100 species of evergreen shrubs, perennials and annuals, the genus Euryops occurs mainly in southern Africa, with one species known from Yemen. The genus takes its name from the daisy-like flowers, with Euryops being Greek for ‘large eye’. E. pectinatus is an endemic half-hardy, shrubby, evergreen species from rocky, sandstone slopes of the Western Cape, South Africa. It reaches 1.5m in height and has vibrant yellow flowers which contrast with the deeply divided, grey, hairy foliage from which the specific name pectinatus is derived, with pectinate being Latin for ‘narrow divisions like a comb’.
