A large plant with very hairy leaves and tubular yellow flowers, surrounded by white ligulets. Essential oil is produced by steam distillation of the flowering tops.  Native to north-west Africa and southern Spain, having probably evolved from the very common Ormenis species that grows all around the Mediterranean. Also found growing on the plains in Israel. The oil is distilled in Morocco.
