Gazanias are a popular colourful and hardy plant, often found in coastal gardens.
Did you know that Gazanias are a declared weed? Declared weeds pose a serious risk to our natural environment. They commonly 'escape' from gardens by:
spreading of seeds
dumping of garden waste
are planted illegally
Once established in our coastal environments, they quickly outcompete local native plants and reduce habitat, food and shelter for local wildlife. They are costly to control and take valuable resources away from other important issues.
What you can do
If you have Gazanias in your garden you can:
carefully remove them
dispose of Gazanias in your green organics bin (don't dump or transport them anywhere)
