The witmagriet as this daisy is commonly known grows in the Western Cape and parts of the Northern Cape. The shrub has a woody base from which annual stems grow in the rainy season. It flowers at the end of winter and in spring. Tufts of narrowly lanceolate toothed leaves are found at the base. The radiate flowers grow on long, sparsely leaved peduncles. The discs are purple in the centre (Manning, 2009).
