- Gazania Seed

Gazania (Gazania Splendens) - Easily grown from Gazania seeds, this incredible little flower is a delight all summer long! Gazania, or Treasure Flower as it's commonly called, is a hardy little plant that makes a wonderful ground cover. It is covered with large 3 - 4 inch blooms ranging in colors of red, yellow, orange, white and pink. Gazania ground cover plants will bloom 12 weeks after sowing the ground cover seed! You just can't improve upon these huge blooms, glowing with bright color, that completely cover the small plants. They reach 8 inches tall and spread 10 inches wide. Gazania Treasure Flower has a lot to brag about as a ground cover plant! With large, showy flowers, an early and long bloom season, and ultra-tolerant low, rapidly spreading foliage, you will want to sow the Treasure Flower seeds in your garden!

Hardy in zones 8 - 10, Gazania ground cover plants are a fabulous long-season annual elsewhere. Start Gazania seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before last frost, or sow the ground cover seeds directly outdoors as soon as the soil can be worked in spring. They make a great permanent ground cover in areas where they are perennial -- particularly southern California and the deep South!
