SUNNY AND COLOURFUL GERBERA
Week 13 to week 16 is all about Gerberas and Germinis. Inspire your customers with these fresh and colourful flowers. This Gerbera brightens up your day!
GET TO KNOW YOUR GERBERA
Gerberas originate from South Africa, Asia, South America and Tasmania and are a member of the composite flower family Asteraceae or Compositae. The little sister of the Gerbera is the Germini; small but just as much fun as her big sis! The Gerbera has no symbolic meaning, but has a very sunny appearance. We can say its presence means: you make everything more beautiful!
SHAPES AND SIZES
Gerberas are very popular! 900 million Gerberas are produced per year. Within these 900 million there are 600 different varieties in colour, shape and size. The ever-cheerful Gerbera is available in the basic colours of white, red, orange, yellow, pink, lilac and purple. The flower is available bicoloured, multi-coloured and in various colours derived from the basic colours. There are also various flower shapes: single and double flowered, pom-pom and spider shapes. The flower’s beautiful heart can be black or green. The heart of a Gerbera or Germini is also called an eye.
YOUR FABULOUS floral design WITH GERBERAS
Gerberas are perfect for creating a beautiful and sleek look. Combine different colours and shapes and create height differences. The stark lines of the vase in the photo make the contrast even greater. It looks like the Gerberas are being lifted up by the sparkling purple Statice.
Placing the robust Gerbera in a coloured vase, a glass vase or a small vase for individual flowers creates a completely different effect.
