detailed seed-starting info below

Even though this gazania can tolerate cold winters, a combination of cold and wet (as we tend to experience in Pennsylvania) may easily do it in. We'll do our best to provide the drainage it requires, so as to witness its glossy deep-green leaves with bold orange daisy flowers in their full glory.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
