Gazania Kiss Bronze Gazania Rigens is a herbaceous, tender perennial flowering plant native to South Africa. Gazania Kiss Bronze seeds germinate in two-three weeks, and the plant grows moderately fast starting to bloom in 12 weeks from germination, so if you grow Gazania as an annual, it is recommended to start the Gazania Rigens seeds indoors in winter 6-8 weeks before last frost. Treasure Flower is a common name of this popular garden flower, and this particular selection of Gazania Kiss blooms with 3 inch in diameter, daisy-like, orange-bronze flowers on a top of low to the ground basal foliage. The bright, orange flowers of blooming Gazania attract butterflies and bees.
Gazania Kiss Bronze can be planted in large groups as a flowering ground cover that forms a bright carpet of color providing an eye catching display to any landscape. Treasure Flower Kiss Bronze is a popular choice for container plantings, pots, hanging baskets and window boxes. Gazania Rigens seeds are very easy to grow, and once established Treasure Flower loves sun and heat tolerating poor soil and drought and requiring a very little care. Gazania benefits from deadheading of the spent flowers, so the new growth can promote more blooms, and some occasional watering with dry periods between will keep Treasure flower in a good shape.
