Add sizzle to the garden with this romantic color.
We're blushing with pride over our pink Daybreak Gazania. If your garden is in need of a plant to add sensational color and minimal care, this is an annual for you! Gazania love the heat of summer and will amaze you with dazzling 3" blooms, even in the driest of soils. Petals are kissed with two shades of romantic pink, and blooms close every night to reopen at daybreak. Silver-green leaves are deeply cut in a feather shape and feel like felt on their white undersides. Use as a summer groundcover or as a border or edging along walkways, drives or on slopes. Try them with small yellow marigolds, any vinca, Wave petunias or alyssum for a spectacular effect. You can sow directly in the garden after the chance of all frost or start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost for earlier bloom. Plants should be spaced 6-8" apart in the garden. Plants ship in spring at proper planting time.

Could not get seeds to growI tried them in different locations, and I could not get germination. I grew other Burpee seeds with success this year, but for some reason these were a bust.

EASY!These are super easy to grow and produce a lot of blooms and lasted throughout the fall in Vermont. They did well in the ground and in containers.

Top PerformerI've grown Daybreak Gazanias for the last few years, from seed in my unheated greenhouse. The germination rate is excellent, and the plants perform very well especially when grown in multiples in large deck pots (less so when planted in the ground).
