List of files and visuals associated with this text.

Gazania grows well in rock gardens or in hot, dry areas. Good soil give best growth but the plant tolerates poor, sandy soil. Gazania requires less water than most annuals. Full sun is preferred and the flowers do not open on wet or cloudy days. Removing the old blossoms will increase the number of blooms produced.

The plant is propagated by either seed or cuttings. The cuttings are taken in August or September and the plants are grown inside during the winter. The seed germinates in 10 to 14 days at 68 to 86 degrees. Cover the flat after planting seed, as light inhibits germination.
