I am certain this is Senecio linearifolius, and almost certain it is var. intermedius.

Yes definitely Senecio linearifolius but I have trouble hiding sub species. There are consistently five petals. I can't tell if it is var intermedium or var latifolius

It is hard enough getting the ID to subspecies level in the hand, almost impossible from a photo.
