Gerbera Overview

Gerbera is a genus of around 40 hairy perennial species originating from temperate grasslands and mountains in Southern Africa, Madagascar, Indonesia and India. Flowers are brilliantly coloured, long-lasting and daisy-like. They are showy flowers, produced singly and may be single or double petalled. Common colours include yellow, white, pink, red and orange. There are thought to be thousands of domesticated cultivars and hybrids developed from this genus, in a huge range of colours. It is also very popular in the cut flower market and, commercially, Gerbera species are the fifth most used cut flower worldwide.
