actotis/arctotis ?

I have a plant that has what I(male)would call purple daisy-type flowers, and white/silvery deeply cut foliage. All the information I can find lists this as an annual with very different flower colors. I have googled this plant by the above names and got nothing decisive. The plant is outdoors and has withstood some frost. If you are knowledgeable about this plant I would appreciate your contacting me and let's see if we can possibly identify this plant. Possibly the plant is not one of the above.

RE: actotis/arctotis ?

I'm fairly certain what you describe is acrtotis....a half hardy annual. I had it in 2005, and it was a lovely plant that withstood several frosts b4 biting the dust.

It comes in many lovely colors.
