What is this hideous plant?
Gazania. It needs to be outside in full sun and then it won't be hideous
Looks like a a very unhappy Gazania
Well it looks a little like a poorly Gazania.
Thank you. I love that there is a pool of knowledge here........when Google fails, the forum will deliver.
What's also good is that you'll get admonished if your gazania's a bit poorly but Google won't have the courage!
Those look like gazanias. I love them, they're beautiful but I thought they had to be outside. These are mine - they do look a bit of a mess when their asleep, end of flower life, or when it's been raining too much.
Now those look the business.......robust and colourful.
I confess the poorly gazania is not mine but never having grown the things, I was stumped when asked to "Name this plant" (Maurice, if you must know). It is one of those things that I have ignored over the decades because they look far too exotic to cope with an English country garden and associated climate. Obviously they cope just fine and look great into the bargain.
Definitely. Stop torturing it!
I tried to grow some from seed this year and failed miserably!
They're beautiful Wakes.
