Gazania New Day mix is a sunny mix of red stripe, rose strips, garden sun and bronze. The plant habit is compact, but the flower power is anything but. It loves the heat and dry, well-drained locations. No problem using in rock gardens or on borders around driveways and sidewalks. Works well in baskets, containers, as ground cover, or as an accent plant in any sunny spot in need of color. Butterflies will flock to their large, bright blooms.

Blooms close at night so variety is not suitable for cut flowers. It is actually a tender perennial, hardy in zones 9 and 10, but most areas treat it as an annual. Named after the 15th century Greek-Italian scholar, Theodorus of Gaza.
