CAPE DAISY

Information

Cape Daisy (Arctotheca calendula) is also known as Cape Weed. As depicted in the photograph above, it has short thick horizontal stems with a rosette forming at the ends of these stems. As a result it forms thick, dense patches in lawns. The upper side of the leaves are green and the undersides are white. The characteristic flower is similar to a daisy in shape but it is pale yellow on the outer petals, bright yellow on the inner petal with a purplish centre.

Solutions

  • Cool season lawns: Cape daisy can be selectively controlled using any of the commonly used selective broadleaf herbicides. Warm season lawns (Kikuyu, Couch, Seashore paspalum); Mecaprop + Ioxynil (sold Image or Axall)
