Gazania is a species of annual and perennial daisies from South Africa. They are low growing, clump forming plants with showy flowers in many colours, often with interestingly marked petals. When growing in conditions that suit them, they will flower for a long time. In Australia they can naturalise readliy from windblown seeds, but there are new double cultivars that have been recently developed which will not go to seed, making these an attractive option for landscaping. They are also good for container growing.
Gazanias like a sunny position and tolerate little frost or wet feet. They thrive in coastal plantings and are drought tolerant. Troubled by few pests and diseases, they will also grow in poor soils.
