The Arabian oxeye (Anvillea garcinii) is a woody perennial shrub (2) (4) (5) with crinkly, oval, grey or grey-green leaves (2) (4) which taper towards the base and have irregularly toothed edges (2). This rigidly branched species has a woolly appearance, as it is covered in short, white or greyish hairs (6).
The yellow, disc-shaped flowers of the Arabian oxeye grow singly, and are found on the ends of short, thick stalks. The flowers are surrounded by radiating bracts that look like leaves (2).
The Arabian oxeye produces very small, compressed fruits, just 0.3 to 0.4 centimetres in length (2).
- Height: 20 - 50 cm (2) (3)
