Yellow flowers on green leaves. Grows as a ground cover. Fire
resistant and needs little water. These are often found on highway
hillsides and you will see them on hillsides and lawns in Ladera
Heights. They spread rapidly if not carefully controlled and will
crowd out other plants.
If not maintained, this plant will spread and overtake other nearby
plants. It will also start to look messy, especially if the flowers
are left to go to seed. Seeds are of the puff-ball variety, but
significantly more dense than the dandelion. I had large patches of
Gazania in my yard and I have been slowly removing it and replacing it
with other plants.
