Oldenburgia grandis is a remarkable, small, thick-set, tree similar in appearance to some tree proteas, but this strange plant's thistle-like flowers show that it belongs in the daisy family (Asteraceae). This species has the largest flowers of our indigenous Asteraceae family, having a diameter of 100 to 130 mm. This is a common feature plant. ZA Distribution: Eastern Cape.
