Euryops pectinatus is a species of flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to South Africa.[1] It is a vigorous evergreen shrub growing to 1 m (3 ft 3 in) tall and wide, with silvery green, hairy leaves and yellow, daisy-like composite flowers, 5 cm (2 in) in diameter, on long stems, from early summer through to autumn (and into winter if grown under glass).

E. pectinatus is widely used as a garden plant, especially in urban areas, because of its hardiness and its almost perpetual flowering regime. It grows best in full sun and well-drained deep soils. It must be grown in a sheltered location, away from frost-prone areas. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society‘s Award of Garden Merit.[2] Wikipedia.org
