Then there is that beautiful little daisy flower with it's bright, golden cheery flowers, Osteospermum, the African daisy. It is often laden with blooms.
I also have an elusive little plant that should be a big plant by now and has somehow forgotten to grow. I think it must be a bantam plant like my bantam chickens. It is a yellow bush daisy (Euryops pectinatus). It is a hardy perennial with grayish-green leaves and bright yellow daisies. I say it is a hardy perennial, it has rarely had any water in one of the driest parts of the garden and yet it is still alive. When it flowers, the flowers will be yellow.
However my cotton lavender bush grows beautifully. It is also very drought tolerant and lives in another very dry part of the garden. it has survived for years and flowers each year. Why it is called a lavender I really don't know as it has yellow flowers, round little button flowers, nothing like a purple lavender. It also has grey/green leaves.
