New Day Mixture gazania is a formulated blend of bronze-red, orange, pink, white, and yellow flowers. New Day gazanias were bred to form more compact, robust plants with larger flowers held on shorter stems. Growing 8-10 in. tall, New Day Mixture is a stellar performer in containers or in the garden. They are outstanding edging or ground cover plants. And they are easy to grow, heat and drought tolerant, and deer and rabbit resistant. Usually grown as a summer annuals, plants are perennial in zones 9 and 10.
Growing New Day Mixture Gazania Seeds
Plant Gazania Seeds: Sow gazania seed in flats, press into soil and barely cover. Needs darkness to germinate. Cover flats with newspaper and keep out of direct sun. Kept at 70°F., germination is in 14-21 days. Transplant seedlings 12 in. apart.
Grow Gazania: Full sun. Heat and drought tolerant, average water produces heaviest bloom. Plants are disease resistant, near insect-proof and rabbit and deer resistant. Remove old flowers to promote further bloom. If plants appear tired or spindly, cut back by half to increase vigor and bloom. Flowers attract butterflies, close at night. Where gazanias are perennial, for best appearance and optimal vigor shear plants back to 3 in. in late winter.
