Poached egg daisy, ( Polycalymma stuartii)

The Poached egg daisy is one of the most abundant and conspicuous plants on sand plains and dunefields during good seasons. It is a stout, erect herb of 10-50 cm in height. It flowers in spring and in years of good autumn rainfall preceding a dry summer, the plant is sometimes so abundant that patches appear as a sea of yellow and white.
