Cape Daisy (Arctotheca calendula) is also known as Cape Weed. As depicted in the photograph above, it has short thick horizontal stems with a rosette forming at the ends of these stems.

The characteristic flower is similar to a daisy in shape but it is pale yellow on the outer petals, bright yellow on the inner petal with a purplish centre.
