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.
- 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 krebsiana Hantamberg Orange:
I've planted several of these in a full sun, dry, low fertility area and much to my amazement, they are thriving. Their blooms are impressive for the size of plant and the unobtrusive size makes them a pleasant surprise between my salvia and coreopsis. Nice.

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).
