Tripteris aghilliana sprouts annually from a woody rootstock. Leaves are mainly basal and linear. Due to glandular hairs, the plant feels sticky. Terminal daisy-like yellow flowers are produced on stalks, 20cm high. The plant is small and delicate with unusually large, oval seeds with papery wings. A must for the Highveld garden. It is very drought-resistant.
It is very fast growing and produces flowers at an early stage. Interplant with grasses for the best effect.
