Gazania flowers are a member of the daisy family Asteraceae, genus Gazania. Also known as the treasure flower, gazanias will bounce back from light frosts.
When grown in zones 9 to 11, they may perform as perennials.
The look-at-me color spectrum available in gazanias may not blend into the look of a Victorian cottage garden, but butterflies will flock to these prolific summer bloomers.
It is a low-maintenance flower that is excellent for brightening up hard-to-landscape spaces.
Gazania flowers are ideal for any gardener who is looking for a high-impact bloom that doesn’t require much maintenance.
