Hello, my name is Gerbera

Nice to meet you, too.  My name is Gerbera daisy but Gerbera jamesonii is my full name.  You’ve probably met other flowers from my family… sunflowers, daisies, or asters.  I am originally from South Africa, but you can find my siblings and I just about everywhere these days.  And though we look a lot alike, we can be orange, red, yellow, pink, salmon, or white.  I do wonders for bouquets, centerpieces, and even boutonnieres.  Give me a chance to make your wedding day a bit more colorful and I will show you why I am the fifth most popular cut flower in the world.

  • Gerbera daisies look great alone but they also mix well with other flowers
  • Flowers will last between four and seven days in a vase depending on how they are cared for
  • Store flowers in a bucket that supports their heavy heads to be sure you have long, straight stems to work with
  • Gerbera daisies can symbolize simplicity, loyal love, and cheerfulness

Gerbera daisies allow you to be creative, colorful, and thrifty all at the same time, not to mention they are just plain beautiful…all the ingredients for a great wedding day flower.
