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 cool green foliage. In dull weather, the blooms close their petals but they soon put on a bright show again as soon as the sunshine returns.
