Gazania, particularly in vibrant orange shades, is a striking and colorful perennial plant native to South Africa, often grown as an annual in cooler climates. Known for its daisy-like flowers and drought tolerance, Gazania (either Gazania rigens or Gazania splendens) is a popular choice for gardeners seeking to add a splash of color to sunny, dry areas of the garden.

Growing to about 6 to 12 inches tall and 6 to 10 inches wide, Gazanias form low, compact mounds of narrow, green leaves that may have silvery or hairy undersides, depending on the variety. The plant is celebrated for its large, daisy-like flowers, which come in a range of colors, with the orange varieties providing particularly bright and cheerful pops of color. The flowers typically open in full sun and close at night or on cloudy days.

Adapted to full sun, Gazanias thrive in well-draining soil and are exceptionally drought-tolerant once established, making them an excellent choice for xeriscaping, rock gardens, and coastal gardens. They prefer a moderate amount of moisture but can tolerate periods of dryness, making them suitable for a variety of garden situations.

In landscaping, Gazanias are often used in borders, as ground covers, or in containers and hanging baskets where their colorful blooms can be appreciated up close. They are also effective in attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies, adding to their appeal in the garden.

Overall, Gazanias in orange shades are low-maintenance and visually striking plants, ideal for adding long-lasting color and texture to sunny garden areas. Their ease of care, drought tolerance, and vibrant blooms make them a favored choice for gardeners looking to create impactful and sustainable landscapes.
