Ursinia nana

This small annual herb is attractive and has fast spreading habits. The wiry stems bear a single radiate (Daisy-like) flower head which is carried on a short peduncle (stalk) on the end of a leafless stem. The fruit is arranged in two rows and is pappus, having a ring of feathery hairs around it, whilst having petal-like scales at its tip. This makes it for an easy wind dispersal technique of the seeds.
