Eco-Friendly Gerbera Daisies

When choosing online flowers, sending Gerbera daisies is like sending a bursting bouquet of sunshine that brings a bright smile onto the recipient's face. When you really need a gift that brings cheer, you should think of Gerbera Daisies first. They are in fact the fifth most popular type of flowers in the world, behind only these floral celebrities: Roses, carnations, chrysanthemums, and tulips. Online flowers are the fastest and easiest way to send a gift that really makes a big statement.

Gerbera daisies have the same meanings as most other daisies-innocence, purity, and beauty-but they also have the added quality of cheerfulness. This is because of their striking resemblance to sunflowers, and also to their many variations in color. You'll find them in cool pinks, warm yellows, deep reds, soft whites, and more. There's a happy hue to express whatever emotion you're feeling, and there is no situation when Gerbera flowers aren't welcomed and appreciated.

The scientific name of the Gerbera daisy is Gerbera jamesonii, which pays tribute to its founder, Robert Jameson (its common name is actually in reference to Traugott Gerber, the German naturalist). Jameson discovered these daisies in 1884 in South Africa. They began breeding them in 1890 in England, and the available colors and quality increased dramatically. Today they are primarily grown in the Netherlands, and also Columbia.

The Gerbera daisy is appropriate for any cheerful occasion. If a loved one is celebrating a birthday, a bouquet of Gerberas will brighten their day even more. If a coworker got promoted, they'll be so surprised and thankful for the vase of Gerberas on their desk. Has someone done a big favor for you? Thank them with a bunch of multicolored Gerbera daisies. Even for a sick loved one, there is no greater get well wish than a cheerful, colorful bunch of Gerbera Daisies. They are truly appropriate for any occasion.

Caring for your daisies is simple. Just remove the packaging and fill a vase with water. As you cut 1/4" off the bottom of each stem, either hold it under running water or submerge it in a container of water. It's important to have the stem in water as you make that cut, so be careful on this step! Place each stem immediately into the vase after cutting. Now they are ready to be placed in a cool, dim room. A quick water change every day will ensure that your Gerbera daisies last as long as possible.
