Gerberas are native to South Africa (as a result, they obviously love full sun if you’re growing them) and are a larger member of the Asteraceae family (sometimes known as the Daisy family), being able to grow as big as 12 cm in diameter. One of the most distinctive qualities of gerberas is their range of different colours, coming in red, pink, yellow, orange, purple and white. Its own distinctive floral rainbow.
Before we start, it’s important to remember that there are some pretenders out there when it comes to gerbera colours. For instance, you’ll never find true blue or green gerberas in a natural cut flower bouquet. Whilst blue, green gerberas can exist, this is normally as a result of artificial colouring.
