Arctotis stoechadifolia, the African daisy[2] or white arctotis,[3] is a rare species of South African plants in the daisy family. It is a rare plant found only in sand dunes along the west coast of Cape Province.[4]

The species is sometimes regarded as the same species as the much more common and widely cultivated A. venusta, but authors separate the two as distinct species.[5][6]
