Vivid Gleeful Gazania Faces
Gazania are native to Southern Africa, now found in many parts of the world, not requiring much water these perennial plants make a cheerful addition to many gardens.
Leaves on the flowering plants vary from light to dark green, in some cases take on a light grey colour, leaves are vaiable in shape and appearance, densely clustered along the stems.
These plants are versatile, converting small areas, containers, large flower beds into a delightful colourful corner enjoying full sun. With brightly coloured flowers to attract pollinating insects, and are not threatened by common garden pests and diseases.
Gazania are drought tolerant and can grow almost anywhere. In frost regions they are grown as an annual, so they really do grow just about anywhere, not demanding much from the gardener, except to step aside and enjoy this flowers gleeful face.
This cheerful face was photographed in Northern KwaZulu-Natal in the town of St Lucia
