Native to South Africa, gazanias create a stunning show in a hot, sunny position in the garden. Their dramatic daisy-like blooms come in shades of rose, red, pink, bronze, gold and orange and are set off by the cool green foliage. In dull weather, the blooms will close their petals but they soon put on a bright show again as soon as the sunshine returns.

Gazania ‘Kiss Bronze’ bears double flowers in a cheerful bronze-orange. It's perfect for using to fill gaps in a sunny border or growing as part of a summer container display. Grow in well-drained soil in full sun. Feed fortnightly with potash-rich fertiliser and deadhead spent blooms to prolong flowering.
