Description:

Shrub with long bear stems up to 1,2m (occasionally taller), often forming large colonies in grasslands (invasive). Hairy leaves with velvety feel. Yellow flowerheads (lower parts densely hairy) at ends of stems. Strong smell reminiscent of narcissi esp. at dusk when it can become quite intoxicating, probably attracting pollinating insects. It may flower anytime of the year, but is most prominent during the winter and spring months. Similar to G. anthylloides – a specie that has not been recorded in this region yet and does not seem to form colonies.
