General Information:

Gazania is a beautiful and vibrant flowering plant that thrives in the Manitoba climate. With its striking colors and drought tolerance, it is a popular choice for gardeners looking to add a splash of color to their full sun landscapes. It has large daisy shaped blossoms held above the foliage. It is sun loving and drought tolerant that is at home in hot dry summers. The flowers will close up on cloudy days , at night and in the shade of another plant.

Climate and Soil Requirements

 Gazanias can tolerate a wide range of soil types, but it prefers well-draining soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. If your soil is heavy or clay-like, you can improve drainage by adding organic matter such as compost or peat moss.

Planting and Care

When planting gazania, choose a sunny location in your garden. The plant requires at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day to thrive. Water the plants regularly, keeping the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Avoid overhead watering, as wet foliage can lead to fungal diseases.

Gazania is a low-maintenance plant that doesn't require much fertilization. However, you can apply a balanced slow-release fertilizer once or twice during the growing season to promote healthy growth. Remove any spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming.

Pest and Disease Control

Gazania is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, it can occasionally be affected by aphids, slugs, or snails. Monitor your plants regularly and take appropriate measures if you notice any pest infestations. You can use organic insecticides or handpick the pests to control their population.

To prevent diseases, avoid overwatering, plant in full sun and ensure good air circulation around the plants. If you notice any signs of fungal diseases, such as powdery mildew or leaf spots, remove the affected leaves and treat the plants with a fungicide if necessary.
