Gazania Treasure Flower Garden a golden find amongst ground covering natives and easy to grow from seed.
I am familiar with Gazania as a low annual or carpet bedding plant in the sunny parts of the UK. Discovering the frost-tender wildflower is actually a South American, Mexican native.
Home in the garden or meadow, and known as one of the top ten native pollinator plants to grow from seed at home.
Gazania or treasure flower is a fast-growing perennial that tolerates dry conditions and full sun, thriving in a gravel garden or amongst meadow grasses to great effect.
Treasure flower is also at home in the front of sunny garden borders, short dry meadows, or prairie plains, long-lasting large star flowers start in Spring and can continue through Summer.
Long season single flowers appear from narrow leafy mounds, these large daisy flowers are a bold ground-cover display when planted on mass, a blanket of orange and red.
Popular with an array of pollinators, particularly butterflies and bees, and plentiful seed for fall birds.
Harvested from my own pollinator-friendly plants these sun-following Mexican daisies make a cheerful addition to the front of any butterfly or wildflower garden.
Thriving on poor soils in full sun, on the prairie, or at home in the cottage garden, plant with bee balm, goldenrod, and asters.
We hand collect and clean our seeds all freshly collected in 2020 seeds, seed may contain some natural chaff or seed parasols depending on the difficulty level of seed cleaning, we leave plenty for the birds.
Seed counts are approx and often way over! We germinate all our own seeds, sell plug plants, and propagation material.
Seed Storage and Sowing:
Once you receive your seeds best kept refrigerated for 4 or more weeks (unless Fall sowing) to help break seed dormancy and keep fresh for seasonally appropriate sowing.
Easy to grow, sow seeds direct where you would like them to flower or start indoors several weeks prior to the last frost.
