  • Description

  • Notes

This Gazania variety is a moderately fast growing, low ground cover with gray fuzzy leaves and bright yellow daisies held above the foliage. It prefers light soil, good drainage and full sun to light shade. Allow plants to be irrigated in mornings so that foliage is dry at dusk. It is tolerant and dependable for tough situations, needing only some additional irrigation during the hottest seasons.
hardy to 15f
