The beautiful variety of colors and types that Gerbera daisies come in make them a very popular flower for using in floral arrangements, bouquets and centerpieces. With their large, open blossoms and bright colors, it’s no wonder that one of the meanings of the Gerbera daisy is cheerfulness. Other meanings include innocence and purity, in addition to these flowers being a classic symbol of beauty. We carry Gerbera daisies in several different types, including Gerpoms, which have several extra layers of petals, creating a larger, rounder and fuller flower. These come in several shades from deep burgundy to red, orange, yellows, purple, pink and white. Large Gerberas are classic daisies with large blossoms that come in many colors like different shades of red, orange, pinks, cream and white. For a smaller flower, opt for the Mini Gerbera daisy, which is available in the same colors as the large-sized flower.
Care for Gerbera daisies is quite simple. Cut the stems at a 45-degree angle and remove any foliage that will sit below the waterline. Put the flowers in a vase filled with clean, fresh water and add cut flower food. Refresh the water every day and keep the flowers in a cool area out of the way of sunlight, drafts and direct heat.
