The cheerful, long lasting Gerbera is the fifth most popular cut flower in the world—and it’s no surprise! The bright beauties add a pop of color to any space.
Native to tropical regions of South Africa, the Gerbera is part of the Asteraceae (daisy family) and was named after the botanist Traugott Gerber. They were not produced in North America until the 1920s.
Traditionally grown as a perennial, the cheerful flower is also a popular garden plant—it is easy to grow and attracts butterflies and other pollinators. Grown in a variety of colors like white, yellow, orange, red, and pink. Sometimes, the same flower can have petals of several different colors.
With a vase life of up to 14 days, Gerbera daisies—like Sunflowers—are traditionally associated with joy, happiness and cheer and are the birth flower of April. Gerbera daisies are popular year-round, these sunny beauties are especially popular in Spring!
