A Cheerful 2015 with Gerbera
I’m hoping that everyone will have a cheerful new year…
so I’m sharing a variety of vibrant Gerbera flowers to brighten up the first day of the year.
(My long time plant buddy/dealer Fronia delivered eleven of these beauties last December 1 and an additional seven last December 9, 2014 straight from a flower farm in Davao.)
Some curious people think the blooms are made of synthetic materials because the size of the flowers are 7.5 cm to 10 cm…
I really hope the blooms will be larger after they have adapted to their new environment.
Anyway, I’m glad that the stingless bees love the vibrant flowers…
These plants have no name-tags so I decided to name them with descriptive colors.
What I like about these plants are:  They bloom in a variety of colors – whites, creams, yellows, oranges, reds, pinks, purples, and bi-colors (except true blues and purples);
 They produce pretty large flowers;
 They are low maintenance plants;
 They grow well in a tropical garden (like mine);
 They look good in containers as well as in flower beds;
 They are nice cut flowers… florists say Gerbera ranks number 5 in the most popular cut flowers;
 They are perennials… that is, they bloom many times in a year;
Thanks for Visiting
Have A Prosperous New Year
