Osteospermum oppositifolium used to be called Tripteris oppositifolia. It is known as skaapbos or stinkskaapbos (foetid sheep bush) in Afrikaans. Flowers can be expected from midwinter into early spring. When the conditions are favourable, plants can be fully cloaked in blooms as in the picture. The shrub grows in the Western Cape and Northern Cape, from the coast and inland on dry, stony slopes. The coastal form may have lighter coloured daisies than the inland ones (Manning, 2009; Manning and Goldblatt, 1997).
