Natal Ivy Senecio macroglossus has relatively few ray florets
surrounding the small yellow disc florets. Seeds in plants of this genus
have greyish tufts of fluff to aid in wind dispersal and this is the origin
of the name Senecio as "senex" is the Latin word for "old man". The
fluffy outgrowth on a seed is called a pappus.
