Ursinia anthemoides or solar fire is an annual, herbaceous flowering plant of the genus Ursinia,[1] native to South Africa.[1] It has yellow or orange daisy-like inflorescences.[1][2] Fruits have both pappus and hairs, making the seeds easily dispersed by wind. [3]

It was first described by Carl Linnaeus in the 1759 10th edition of Systema Naturae.[4]
