Gazania – Montezuma
Gazania hybrid – ‘Montezuma’
A tough, flowering groundcover growing up to 30cm tall and 40cm wide with glossy, flat leaves. It flowers all through the warmer months of the year with lovely, purple and white striped petals and a bright yellow centre.
It has many uses in the garden from a general groundcover to a filler in mixed plantings. It is a perfect plant for waterwise, hot climate and low maintenance gardens.
It should be grown in well drained soil in a full sun position. During the hottest and driest months of the year it should be mulched and occasionally deep watered. The spent flowers should be removed and it will benefit from yearly applications for slow release fertiliser.
