Plant Families / Gazania
Native to South Africa, Gazania (Treasure Flowers) are showy tender perennials exhibiting brightly colored daisy-like flowers, up to 5 in. wide (12 cm), over a long blooming season. Ridiculously easy to grow, they tolerate drought, heat, seacoast conditions, and grow well in most soils. Prized by gardeners for their dazzling colors, Gazanias are ideal plants to add drama to sun-baked sites with dry soil, where other plants would shrivel.
