Looks like a population of a white-flowered Crown daisy

Post by MWP admin » Sat Apr 21, 2007 5:29 pm

I am confused if this population found at Ta' Qali is the ornamental Argyranthemum frutescens, or Matricolaria, or something else. Wild ? native ? Escape? Nat. Alien?

It was not aromatic, and a much larger plant (sub-shrub of the size of a soccer ball). Argyranthemum frutescens I saw was very large compared to this, while Matricolaria have dome shaped receptacles (and the ones I saw less shrubby) though it may vary according soil type.

It is definitely Anacyclus, because I have a photograph of seeds and they are winged. So it must be Anacylcus tomentosus, as stated by MWP
