The gazania, which is native to South Africa is also called sun-catcher. These sun-loving daisy shaped flowers, with vividly-colored petals, wow the eyes. They look pretty in containers, beds, borders, and as ground-cover. They come in rich shades of yellow, pink, purple, bronze, white, orange, red and coral. They love our Texas heat! They bloom from summer to winter. They are tolerant of drought and poor soil.
These plants bloom in all their glory during sunny seasons. It doesn’t need any pampering and can survive with basic needs. Gazania likes full sun, well-drained soil, and water. I’ll also point out that gazania needs watering only when the conditions are dry. Just like any other flowering plants, they will thrive in good soil, but can tolerate poor soil.
