Pests in Gardens and Landscapes
Gerbera daisy, Barberton daisy, Transvaal daisy—Gerbera
Gerberas are perennial plants but are often treated
as annuals. Flowers can bloom at any time of the year and
are usually red, orange, yellow, or cream-colored and sit upon
a thin stem. Leaves are clumped together, long, and lobed.
Optimum conditions for growth
Gerberas need regular deep water and do best in
rich, well-drained soil. They should be fertilized monthly
during the bloom period. Plants can do well in full sun,
but in very hot climates, gerberas need partial shade.
