gazania

Gazanias are bold and vibrant annuals for hot spots in the garden. Since they thrive in heat and are drought tolerant they are also great in containers on the patio and other areas with radiated heat such as parking strips.

Their foliage is thin and lobed offering a full, somewhat grassy look which is a fantastic contrast with their large exotic flowers. Not only are they easy to grow but they require only minimal maintenance of occasional deadheading. Also since they are hardy to zone 9, they may over winter in a sheltered, well-drained area, or can be overwintered indoors.

Their large, 4-5”, daisy style flowers come in a unique array of colors ranging from golds and oranges to dusky rose and ivory. The bicolor varieties have striped petals in stunning color combinations that giving them a sunburst look. These unique flowers close at night and attract butterflies during the day. They are versatile plants that fit in a variety of garden styles and situations.

For example, they are great for bedding under xeric plants such as Ceanothus and Arbutus, and also fantastic in containers around tropicals such as bananas and castor bean. Gazanias also combine well with ornamental grasses such as Orange sedge (Carex testacea) and Mexican Feather Grass (Stipa tenuissima), Euphorbias, and succulents.
