An excellent choice for hot, dry spots, gazania bears brightly colored daisy-like flowers in shades of bronze, pink, white, yellow, or orange. These durable, easy-to-grow plants excel in beds, containers, and hanging baskets, as well as edgings or groundcovers. They are always a favorite in rock gardens. Plant in spring in well-drained soil and feed with a timed-release fertilizer at planting. For best flowers, be sure the plants get full sun, because the flowers close at night and reopen with sunshine. These plants love hot, dry weather.
