From tropical and southern Africa, there are about 16 species of such annuals and perennials. The name gazania comes from the medieval scholar Theodore of Gaza who lived from 1398-1478. They like full sun and sandy soil. Some varieties close up when there’s no sun but there is a Daybreak series that remains open even in cloudy weather. There are many many kinds of gazania.
