Gazanias are tough plants with bold, daisy-like flowers that endure poor soil, hot conditions, and drought throughout the summer months. The Daybreak series are named so because the flowers close at nightfall and re-open at Daybreak. Daybreak Bright Orange has beautiful Orange blooms and silver-green foliage with a felt-white underside. Great as a groundcover, in borders or for edging walkways.
