Gazania: Treasure Flower (Gazania splendens)
$1.00 - $5.60
These South African cousins of the daisy can endure blazing heat and drought with continued bloom, and often act as a perennial ground cover in warm climates. The Gazania genus honors Theodorus Gaza, an influential Greek scholar of the 15th century Palaeologan Renaissance. Botanist Joseph Gaertner first described and classified Gazania in his landmark publication De Fructibus et Seminibus Plantarum in 1791.
