How to Grow Treasure Flower

Gazania Germination Information

Gazania is the botanical name for Treasure Flower
Gazania Seed Germination How to Sow Gazania:
  • Best sown indoors at 60-65° at a depth 4 times the size of the seed
  • Seeds will germinate in 8-14 days
  • Alternatively, sow outdoors after danger of last frost at a depth of 4 times the size of the seed
  • Outdoors, germination will be in 12-18 days
  • In either case, cover seeds thoroughly as darkness aids germination
  • When sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed

Appearance and Use:

Gazania serves most purposes: ground cover, edging, bedding, borders, planters, house plant, and it makes a cheerful hostess-gift. It’s a vigorous and floriferous annual. The 6-15 inch long flower stalks rise above the plant bearing single daisy-like flowers all summer long into winter if brought indoors. The 3-5 inch flowers are a range of loud colors with ray florets of yellow, gold, cream, orange, pink, or red with yellow disk florets. Flowers close for the night and under overcast skies. Plants reach 6-9 inches tall and the dark green leaves have white, felty undersides
