Euryops chrysanthemoides (DC.) B.Nord., 365 1968. (Syn: Gamolepis chrysanthemoides DC.);

Euryops chrysanthemoides or African bush daisy is a small shrub native to Southern Africa that is also grown as a horticultural specimen in tropical to subtropical regions around the world.[1] It occurs in the Eastern Cape, along the coast and inland, to KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga and Swaziland.  

It is usually found on forest edges, in riverine bush and in ravines, as well as in coastal scrub, grassland and disturbed areas. It is a compact, densely branched, leafy, evergreen shrub, 0.5 to 2m in height.  
The species was moved to Euryops from the genus Gamolepis on the basis of chromosome counts.[2]  
It is a ruderal weed in New South Wales, although it is not weedy in all places where it is cultivated or has naturalized.[3]
