Gazania, especially the yellow varieties, is a vibrant and sun-loving perennial renowned for its bright, daisy-like flowers and exceptional drought tolerance. Native to South Africa, Gazanias, such as Gazania rigens or Gazania splendens, are a popular choice for gardeners looking to add a splash of color to sunny, dry spots in the garden. The yellow-flowered Gazanias are particularly eye-catching, offering a cheerful burst of color that can brighten any landscape.

Growing to about 6 to 12 inches tall and spreading 6 to 10 inches wide, Gazanias form compact, low mounds of narrow, green leaves, which may have silvery or hairy undersides, contributing an added textural interest. The plants are most admired for their sizable, vivid flowers, which appear in abundance from late spring through fall. The yellow varieties shine particularly bright, with their sun-like blooms opening in response to sunlight and closing at night or on cloudy days.

Adapted to full sun, Gazanias thrive in well-draining soil and are highly 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 striking blooms can be appreciated up close. They also play a role in attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies, contributing to the biodiversity of the garden.

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