Gazanias are tender perennial plants, native to South Africa, members of the Daisy family, Compositae.  They have showy bright blooms in summer and make excellent bedding or potted plants.  They may be grown as annuals in cooler climates. 

Gazanias thrive in well drained soil in a sunny location or in containers filled with loamy soil.  Large grouping produce a magnificent showing.

The plants are easily propagated by taking cuttings or sowing seed.  Seeds should be sown in pots or trays and kept moist and warm at 70-75F.  Seedlings should be transplanted to larger containers when they reach about 2 inches in height.  They may be set outdoors or in outdoor containers when all danger of frost has passed.  It takes approximately 12 weeks from planting to bloom.
