Capeweed is an autumn/winter germinating, stemless, rosette forming annual herb with broad, deeply lobed, succulent, leaves 30-250 mm long that have white furry hairs underneath and form a dense rosette. Yellow petalled daisy flowers about 40 mm diameter with a black to brown centre appear in spring on individual 200 mm stalks. The tiny woolly fruits are topped by minute scales.
Symptoms- Seed is readily spread by animals, wind and water and in hay. It rapidly invades areas. Low rainfall events can result in capeweed germination before other species because the woolly seed covering attracts moisture and reduces desiccation. Capeweed can survive periods of drought better than most common agricultural species, so a dry period following good germinating rains increases the proportion of capeweed.
