With more than 600 different shapes, sizes and colors, the gerbera is a cheerful and versatile plant. The flowers come in colours such as yellow, orange, pink and purple, as well as two colours in one. Gerberas love sunny summers and the hardy stems give them a height of 15 to 45 centimeters.
The gerbera belongs to the daisy family and was discovered around 1720. The gerbera is originally from South Africa, Asia, South America and Tasmania. In 1887, the gerbera was discovered in Europe by botanist Jan Frederik Gronovius. He named the plant after his colleague Traugott Gerber, et voilà: the name Gerbera was born!
As a member of the daisy family, this plant represents beauty, purity and innocence. This plant also symbolises joy because of its beautiful colors.
