3. Yes, this is Zinnia peruviana (Redstar Zinnia / Wildejakobregop). It is an alien weed, from South America. Widespread in S.A.

Thanks Imberbe and Mark! I love zinnias, which are a summer garden annual here, but had never seen them growing wild before ... too bad they're an alien :( However, these were not seen in a national park, but along the Panorama Route :wink: Still an alien, but not so bad as a alien seen inside a national park.
