Stripey Gazania (Gazania)

Shame they like the sun - they stay closed in the dreary weather.

Yes - I think you know I couldn't grow any from seed this year, so I've treated myself to just a few plants. :-)

I have some too Spritz, but as you said...Not opening very often this weather...:>)

OH grew some from seed, not a flower bud to be seen!! typical, should have done the same as you.

What a shame. I often buy plug plants, too - but none at all this year, of course. It's a bit expensive buying them as mature plants, but I just had to have a few. I do love the different patterns and colours. :-)

Me too, I wonder if ours will flower eventually?

What a stunning flower, maybe it will bring on the sunshine :-)

That would be nice. The Osteos in my containers have really suffered - the buds keep rotting! :-((

Gazanias always make such a show - no one can pass them without looking twice - at least! LOL! :-))

Yes, agreed. I gather that they're actually tender perennials, but I only dug up a couple to over-winter once. Too much hassle...and I didn't succeed with cuttings, either. :-(((

Oh, to have green thumbs! <sigh>.
