Tips For Growing Gazania (African Daisy)

Gazania (African Daisy) is a genus of African wildflowers known for their showy, daisy-like flowers.
Preferred growing conditions:

  • Plant in a fast draining, infertile soil with full sun. Avoid clay soils. Mulch with gravel or not at all.
  • Water regularly for the first 2 to 3 months to establish new transplants. Thereafter, infrequent but deep watering is adequate.
  • The plants benefit from deadheading to extend the blooming period and limit reseeding where it's not desirable.
  • Fertilize lightly in the fall with a half and half blend of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost.

Special comments:

  • Gazania are typically short lived perennials and gardeners should replace tired plants every 3 or 4 growing seasons. Gazania are willing re-seeders and can be encouraged to do so by mulching with gravel.
  • Reinvigorate the plants in mid-spring by vigorously scratching out the dead foliage to reveal new leaves emerging from the crown. Don't cut the plants back to the ground as this can kill them.

      Comments about High Country Gardens Gazania Butterscotch Baby:

      This arrived late last summer already with seed heads on it! I guess it had been busy at the hCG nursery putting out flowers!
      After I planted on one of the hottest, driest and sunniest sections of our yard, during a drought and Heat Wave that lasted for a month or more, it looked a little tired for a week, then started blooming again!
      Now here it is the start of May on a new year, and this little trooper is already starting to put on a show!
      Since it is said to reseed, I am hopeful for a little colony to sprout up around it.
      We have high desert alkaline soil, which doesn't seem to bother this exceptionally hardy plant

          Looking for hardy, drought resistance plants that can stand a little neglect if I am busy. These plants thrived during a hot summer, with no rain.

            Lovely in the for front of a hilled rock garden in Santa fe.
            The low grow height let's it stand out in front, with colorful blooms through the summer. It's hardy stems seem to be pest resistant too.

              Q & A

              Suggested Companion Plants:

              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
