Big Kiss White Flame gazania Gazania splendens

Bring on the heat! Gazanias don’t mind. The new Big Kiss™ series of gazanias is the perfect solution to those hot, dry areas where other annuals shrivel up and die. Sturdy stems support 4 1/2-in.-wide flowers that are larger than other varieties. Like most gazanias, the flowers of this new variety close at night and on cloudy days. Big Kiss comes in two colors: White Flame, here, and Yellow Flame.

Group a few Big Kiss gazanias along the edge of a hot, sunny sidewalk or grow some in a container on your deck.
