Description
Perennial shrub/herb. Dense, tangled shrub up to 6.5 feet tall. Will climb if suitable support is available. Leaves are glossy, thick, fleshy, and bluntly lobed. Often confused with Cape ivy but has thicker, diamond-shaped leaves. Yellow flowers are daisy-like with larger petals than Cape ivy. 

Impacts
Easily dispersed by wind-blown seed, stem fragments and dumped garden waste. This plant can smother existing native vegetation both in the ground layer and canopy. It alters the light climate in the invaded community and may suppress regeneration of native plants.
