This member of the Asteraceae family was described by Rune Bertil Nordenstam. It's found in Namaqualand, Southern Africa. The caudex will only get two and a half centimetres in diameter, the leaves are only six centimetres. It prefers grit or well-drained soil with little water and some sun. The flowers are yellow, and it can only be reproduced by seeds. 

This is a winter-grower, then again: mine seems to do fine in summer!
