This vividly colored,exotic flower still holds strong these days, despite the short periods of freezing. Gazania is native of South Africa but it grows everywhere and provides great beauty with almost no care. The only thing they need is sunshine.
A typical characteristic of the Gazania flowers is that they close up on overcast days and in the evenings, just like tulips, dandelions and many other flowers do.
I took these photos some weeks ago when these beautiful, vividly colored, daisy-like flowers were still smiling.
Look at this unreal, wild color combination with splashy stripes or rings of contrasting colors.
The Gazania flowers bloom in many solid colors from bold, brilliant yellows to oranges, reds, pinks and more.
