Yellow Red Daisy Flowers

Gerbera daisies are so perfect they hardly look real. They bloom in nearly every color (except true blues and purples) and produce fantastically large flowers on long, thick, sturdy stems. Gerbera daisy (Gerbera jamesonii), is a daisy-like bloomer that comes in a variety of jewel tones, also known as Transvaal daisy. The impressive flowers, which grow on top of single, tall stems, are complemented by mounds of slightly fuzzy leaves. At maturity, Gerbera daisy reaches heights of 8 to 24 inches, depending on the variety. Although Gerbera daisies are often grown as annuals, they are perennial in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 8 to 11. Plant Gerbera daisy bedding plants in the garden when all danger of spring frosts have passed.

Gerbera Daisy plants, with 30 fellow varieties, are one of the most popular, frequently delivered & self-grown flowers across the U.S. Because of their bright & bold colors: red, orange, yellow, white, cream, purple and pink, Gerber daisies can be so vividly colored, you will wonder if they are real. They are. Gerbera is a large genus in the same family as sunflowers (Asteraceae). They are native to South Africa, but a lot of breeding has gone into developing the large daisy-like flowers we see today. They were initially bred to be cut flowers and are still the 5th most common cut flower in the world.This bright, flowering plant is effective at removing trichloroethylene, which you may bring home with your dry cleaning.Large flowers heads have rayed petals around a center disk or green or black. The disk is composed of the actual tiny flowers. Petal colors range from pale pastels and cream to bold oranges, yellows, reds and bi-colors.

There are 4 general classes of Gerbera:

  • Single flowers: This constitutes the main class. Singles will have either one or 2 layers of petals.
  • Semi-double flowers: These have a row of short petals around the center disk. Cut Gerbera Daisies are usually semi-doubles.
  • Double flowers: With multiple layers of petals (5 – 7) the doubles looks a bit more like zinnias or dahlias, than daisies.
  • Spider flowers: These have thinner, more pointed petals.
