A row of multi-colored Gerber Daisies from the garden from a stem-up perspective.
Gerbera daisy flowers exhibit large (4") blooms with yellowish central disks surrounded by colorful rays. The rays are most commonly yellow, red, or orange. However, growers have also produced varieties in white, pink, and violet. Gerbera daisy flowers reach a little over one foot in height, with a width slightly less than that.
Whether you are growing gerbera daisies as perennials or as annuals, water them faithfully; and fertilize regularly for optimal blooming. Gerbera daisy flowers are susceptible to crown rot, so don't plant them too deeply. They are also susceptible to powdery mildew, so avoid overhead watering, and water the plants early in the day. Plants bought at the florist should be introduced only gradually to direct sunlight outdoors; otherwise, they'll wilt.
