Healthy and Hardy!
from Lakewood, Colorado
I planted these last fall and it's now early April in Colorado. These plants not only survived the winter but they are thriving! They were good size when I received and planted them and they have already more than doubled in size. I am excitedly awaiting their bloom time. Based on the health of the early plant, I have no doubt they'll be lovely.
Half of them sur\vived
from Glenwood Springs Colorado
Hard to say. One died immediately and the other stayed tiny and never bloomed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Gorgeous flowers on a healthy plant! I only wish the squirrels and rabbits didn't find them so tasty!
It's a shame
from Morristown, TN

Scarlet Tanager is a bold early gazania
About Me Master Gardener
I have had some difficulty finding just the right place for this attractive gazania. The soil in my garden is excellent but the light is quite variable. This plant needs just the right lighting to do well. I now have it planted with other mid sized plants that are not invasive. It does not compete well. It receives direct mid-day sun for several hours a day and then shade. It starts to blossom in April, a full month earlier than the hardy Butterscotch Baby gazania but man fewer but larger blossoms.
