LoreGazanias, native to South Africa, thrive in the southwestern United States, with its poor soil and dry, hot climates, adapting well to coastal conditions and thriving on sandy slopes and in xeric landscapes. Gazanias will cross pollinate and hybridize readily when multiple cultivars are present within an area, which has led to numerous color variations that dazzle the landscape.
