Gerbera flowers

Gerbera comes from South Africa (but today, this circular bloom is available in many parts of the world) and is part of the Asteraceae family of flowers, the Latin name for this species is Gerbera jamesonii. Discovered in South Africa in 1884 by Scotsman Robert Jameson, which its scientific name derives from, the meaning of its common name is in honors of the German naturalist Gerber. These flowers are strong perennial plants and are available in red, orange, yellow, peach, cream, lilac and more shades.

The symbolism of the gerbera is the simple beauty of a very happy life. There is an energetic  playfulness to these flowers and with their variety of colors and brightness they are connected with joy and cheer. Throughout history, the gerbera daisy has represented the innocent hearts of children and is associated with thankfulness, as well as happiness. These flowers are the celebration of life! Daisies are considered sunny flowers. These beautiful blooms just make you feel happy, and you can extend that feeling with proper care.

  • Potted daisies prefer partial shade or full sunlight and should be watered any time the top two inches of soil dry out.

  • Plant your gerberas in potting soil (combination of sand, clay and vermiculite).

  • Add fertilizer monthly to encourage blooms. Mix liquid fertilizer with water, according to the directions on the package.

  • Clip away dead daisies below the stem nodule. This will encourage new growth.
