Can't ever remember seeing the name Boltonia - but that seems correct. Cheers, JohnnyD

Perhaps Kalimeris incisa?

Updated photos.
Kalimeris does not seem too similar given the height - around four feet.
See attached foliage pics.

Leaves are wrong for Boltonia, sorry. Looks more like Kalimeris which can grow to 1.2 metres.

We have one... somewhere. It may have survived the drought, but for the life of me I cannot remember where it was/is. I remember buying it.
