Good ol’ gazanias

I’d never been a fan of planting flowers just for the sake of flowers but was given a tray of gazanias a while back  and I must admit they are pretty great.  They are indigenous, from Namaqualand and the South-western Cape and like sun, lots of it.

They flower profusely in winter and spring and my plants have started to self-sow themselves in clumps around the garden.  Gazanias come in a variety of colours – red, pink, yellow, cream and white – but as you can see from the pic below, mine are orange.

Good ol' gazanias.
