Euryops pectinatus, the grey-leaved euryops, is a species of flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, endemic to rocky, sandstone slopes in the Western Cape of South Africa (from Gifberg to the Cape Peninsula).[1]

Mature shrub

It is a vigorous evergreen shrub growing to 1.5 m (4 ft 11 in) tall and wide, with silvery green, hairy leaves and yellow, daisy-like composite flowers 5 cm (2 in) in diameter.[2] They bloom from early summer through to autumn and into winter in areas with mild climates.

The fruits bear a single seed and are either hairless or covered in myxogenic (slime-producing) hairs, and may also be topped by a pappus of white or brown bristles.[2]

The Latin specific epithet pectinatus means “comb-like”,[3] possibly referring to the deeply-divided, fernlike leaves.

Euryops pectinatus is widely used as a garden plant, especially in urban areas and due to its almost perpetual flowering regime. It grows best in full sun and well-drained deep soils. It must be grown in a sheltered location, away from frost-prone areas. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[4][5]

All parts of the plant are poisonous if ingested.[2]
