Definition of dimorphotheca in English:
1A southern African plant of the daisy family, sometimes grown as a border plant.
- Genus Dimorphotheca, family Compositae
- In August and September of each year it becomes a magnificent carpet of colourful flowers with ursinias, arctotis, dimorphothecas, gazanias and mesembs (commonly known in South Africa as vygies).
- As time goes by, and as our winters become increasingly mild, as predicted, we may also be able to grow aloes (A. vera, however, prefers sub- or tropical conditions) and the wonderfully coloured dimorphothecas outside in the future in the hope that they may perennate.
