Gazania, most commonly known as African daisy and is grown as both perennial and annual, depending on country to country. They are perfect for growing on both soil and in containers and are widely used for interior decoration purposes. Belonging to the Asteraceae family, it is a half-hardy flower. These plants have leathery foliage which makes them strong and drought tolerant as the foliage also has waxy cuticles. Colour of these leaves, however, can range from grey to green and is seen as densely clustered together, in a lance shape. The flowers grow in bright, attractive colours like orange, red, pink, white and yellow. The seeds should be best planted into the garden soil, the distance of 1 foot should be observed between each planting.
