Gazania Garden Leader Orange seeds do not need any special treatment prior sowing. Also known by its common name Treasure Flower, Gazania Rigens is a trailing, compact growing perennial plant that is mostly grown as an annual all over the world. Featuring silvery-white foliage with highly variable in shape leaves, Gazania Garden Orange blooms prolifically all season long, and its large and showy, daisy-like orange flowers are attractive to butterflies and bees.
