From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arctotheca calendula is a plant in the sunflower family commonly known as capeweed, plain treasureflower, cape dandelion, or cape marigold because it originates from the Cape Province in South Africa. It is also found in neighboring KwaZulu-Natal

Arctotheca calendula is naturalized in California, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Australia, and New Zealand, and considered a noxious weed in some of those places






It is a noxious weed in our parts of Australia.

I’m scraping into Sally D’s ‘macro week’ by the skin of my teeth! Next week is Black & White.

Thanks for looking. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.   🙂
