Info: Gazania Sunshine Mix is a lovely mix of very ornamental flowers with a complex petal structure in a vast range of highly decorative colours from yellow to orange and red to crimson. The plants are not winter-hardy and grow 30 to 40 centimetres in height. They flower from over a relatively long period of time, from July up to October. It is highly recommended to grow Gazania in planters or window boxes.
