Annual or short lived perennial from South Africa.

Has small, linear soft, slightly hairy leaves. Bears solitary, light blue, daisy like flowers with a yellow centre.

Flowers June to September, but has not stopped flowering in the 3 years I have grown it even in the depths of winter in a frost free greenhouse.

Likes sharply drained, poorsih soil in full sun. Will not tolerate dampness nor frost and is hardy only down to 37 F so requires a frost free situation for winter.
