Gerber Daisy

Gerber Daisy
Gerbera jamesonii
(GER-ber-uh) (jay-mess-OWN-ee-eye)

Yesterday while purchasing some Pansies this Gerber was sitting on top of a nursery cart full of hundreds of the daisies in full bloom. Even though it is a super busy and big wholesale nursery I had to pull my cart over and get a picture of this pale rider as the sun lit it up from the back. The cart was dripping with snobbism and the flowers seemed a bit haughty. I have to admit it was a beautiful sight to see the daisies in such colors and at their peak.

We also scored some Nemesia, Bacopa and Ranunculus for some big containers, the pots came out nice and all they have to do is make it through tomorrow night when a brief period of freezing weather is expected. The flowers have been acclimated at the nursery so we will just have to wait and see what happens.
