Chaenostoma cordatum is an ornamental plant, which I found in a German small town as well as at a road verge in the Pyrenees. Beneath the usually white flowers today also pink, lilac, and blue breedings are offered. The origin of the plant is South Africa. Beneath the synonyms mentioned above it is often called Sutera diffusus by gardeners, but I couldn't find out the author of this name.
