Since the daisy is the birth flower for the month of April I thought today we would take a look at very a popular variety of daisy, the Gerbera.  The Gerbera Daisy is named in honor of German botanist and medical doctor Traugott Gerber.  The Gerbera Daisy is known for it’s striking bright colors and dark centers and is very popular both as a garden flower and  the 5th most popular cut flower.

Gerberas are very easy to work with in arrangements and a vase or container full of the colorful flowers is very attractive on it’s own and they also mix well with other flowers as you’ll see in some of the arrangements we are looking at today.  Gerberas come in white, yellow, orange, red and pink, to me they always scream summer and warmer weather.  So, grab some daisies at the grocery store and bring some sunshine in, Enjoy!!!
