Winter Blooms-The Gerbera Daisy

Another flower readily available during the winter months is the Gerbera Daisy.  This very popular bloom is widely used in cut flower arrangements and is the fifth most used cut flower in the world.   This South American native bloom is also know as the Transvaal Daisy, Barberton Daisy, Veldt Daisy or African Daisy.

Gerbera daisy color varations are almost endless with the exception of blue and violet blue hues.   The petal colors include white, cream, yellow, orange, pink, lilac, purple, red, brown, salmon, bicolor and multicolor.   And recently, even green Gerbera daisies are now available.   The center disc can be yellow, green, brown, black or dark red.

Gerbera daisies come in three different sizes, miniature which measure 2-3 inches in diameter, standard which are 3-5 inches in diameter and giant which are 5-6 inches in diameter.   The blooms themselves have five different variations, singles, doubles, crested doubles, full crested doubles and quill crested doubles or spider.  With so many options in color and style, this lovely flower perfect for use in almost any arrangement or centerpiece.
