Gerbera Jamesonii hybrida
Flori Line® midi Yellow gerbera daisy is a tender herbaceous perennial that originates from southern Africa. This selection bears large pale Yellow daisies year-round (with peaks in late spring and late fall) above mounds of large, shallowly lobed, dark green leaves.
It prefers fertile, well drained soil and full sun. When cultivated in a greenhouse it grows best in a soil-based potting mix, cool ambient temperatures and filtered bright light. Plants are highly susceptible to whitefly, especially when grown indoors.
Customarily grown as an "annual" for containers, it also makes a good border perennial where winters are mild.

How to Grow Gerbera Daisy From Seed
Sow Gerbera Daisy seeds indoors 8 - 10 weeks before the last frost. Place the pointed end of the flower seed down when sowing
and barely cover as the seeds need light to germinate.
|Transplant outdoors once the danger of frost has passed. Or you can direct sow outdoors when the soil is thoroughly warm in the spring,|
|Transplant when the seedlings have at least two sets of true leaves and the soil is completely warm in spring.|
Soil needs to drain well, and heavy clay should be amended with compost. Because the plant is susceptible to crown rot and produces fewer flowers in wet soil, it is a candidate for raised beds and containers. Plant out when nighttime temperatures are above 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Flowers bloom in early summer.
Cut gerbera daisy blooms back after they fade to keep the plants flowering all summer. The mother plants are evergreen during the dormant season in warm climates, meaning growth simply slows and flowering stops until spring. The plant forms clumps of lush, green foliage that stays low to the ground.
In cooler areas where gerbera daisies are generally treated as annuals, you can overwinter them in pots in a sheltered, frost-free area that receives bright light. Water only enough to prevent the rootball from drying out. These plants put down deep taproots and don't transplant well once established. If you expect to overwinter plants indoors, plant them in pots and sink the pots in the soil, removing the pots when the weather turns cooler.
