Gazania 'Aztec Queen'

Treasure Flower, Gazania

Dazzling, colorfully marked, daisylike flowers bloom on both clumping and trailing Gazanias. Peak bloom is late spring and early summer, but in mild climates they flower at various times year-round. On clumping types, 3- to 4-inch-wide, bicolor flowers rise from evergreen mounds. These close at night and on cloudy days. Use these as fire-retardant ground covers, as edging and in rock gardens. Trailing types are similar, but their long, spreading stems are good for hanging baskets or cascading over walls and banks. Both are heat-loving and easy to grow. Need well-drained soil, and, once established, only twice-a-month watering. Start seed indoors 4 to 6 weeks before last frost is due, or start from cuttings taken in summer. Divide every 3 to 4 years. In wet soils, watch for mold.
