Euryops lateriflorus, in Afrikaans the soetharpuisbos (sweet resin bush), is an erect shrub that grows to 1,5 m. It does not resprout after fire, having to regrow from seed.
The smooth, hairless leaves are thick and hard. The leaves are sessile, i.e. without stalks and overlapping in a regular (imbricate) pattern up the stems. Leaf shape is ovate; leaves vary in width from 5 to 15 mm and in length from 1 cm to 3 cm. The leaves have entire margins, tapering to acute tips; obtuse where the leaves are quite broad.
This plant grows widespread from Namibia to the eastern, arid parts of the Little Karoo, tending to become dominant in overgrazed veld (Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010; iSpot; JSTOR).
