What is Heliophila longifolia
Heliophila longifolia (scientific name: Heliophila longifolia) is an annual herb of the genus Heliophila (Brassicaceae), native to South Africa. Locally, it grows wild in arid areas. The herb is 40 to 50 cm tall, with slender, erect stems that branch at the top. The leaves are linear and alternate. Intercalary racemes grow from the stem tops in spring and produce many small cross-shaped flowers. The flowers are 1 to 1.5 cm in diameter, with cross-shaped petals that are blue with a yellow center. The flowers are followed by a long, angular fruit, which nods off when mature.
