The Gazania is a very easy flower to grow and comes in an amazing range of colours and designs. The gorgeous flowers can be solid shades of reds, yellow or orange and also white. Rings and stripes of dazzling colours adorn the petals in the sunny climate of Oliva Nova in Valencia, Spain.

The species Gazania rigens can be grown as an annual, although in the Valencia area of Spain can be considered a perennial. This Gazania is known as 'Fiesta Red', and is one of the Gazania family that will thrive in all kinds of soil, and prefer hot, dry areas. They will grow equally well in cultivated, suburban rock gardens or in a little corner in Oliva Nova in Spain.

The gorgeous blossoms are attractive to butterflies, bees and some birds, and have a strange habit of closing up their petals on wet or cloudy days. As with most flowers, removing the spent blossoms will encourage more flowers to bloom, and if the dead flowers are left on the ground they will reseed themselves. The Gazania is also known as the Treasure Flower and grows between 10 to 14 inches high.
