Weed of the Month

Veldt Daisy or Cape Daisy

Dimorphotheca ecklonis

Veldt Daisy (or Cape Daisy) is native to South Africa and grows to 0.5m high.  Leaves have a strong smell when crushed and seeds are spread by wind, water, dumped garden waste and the movement of soil.  Hand pull or dig out small plants ensuring you remove all root material as it can resprout.

This weed was featured in the latest edition of the Greenpage newsletter.
