Gerbera

Garvinea Sweet Sunshine Assortment

Garvinea Sweet Series Gerberas are robust plants that impress with flower power from spring to first frost. They thrive in full sun conditions but welcome a bit of shade in the extreme heat of our hot Southern summer months. Plant in well prepared soil to promote excellent drainage and fertilize on a regular monthly schedule to promote strong blooming.

The plants are semi-evergreen so you can see a little die back in the harsh winter periods. Easy to grow and light on the maintenance, you will enjoy Garvenia Gerberas for years to come.

A note for cut flower use: slit the bottom inch of the stem before using in arrangements to help with water uptake.
