They originate from sandy, coastal areas in regions of Southern Africa and have been widely cultivated for their attractive fleshy leaves and brightly coloured daisy-like flowers with lots of petals. Common colours include yellow, purple, red and white and these flowers tend to open in response to midday sunshine.
