The gerbera daisy was discovered in 1884 near Barberton, South Africa, by Scotsman Robert Jameson. While the flower scientific name Gerbera jamesonii, remembers the name of its founder, the significance of its common name from the German naturalist Traugott Gerber.
Gerbera like a daisy with two different sizes: standard and miniature. A wealth of color is included, such as orange, peach, pink, red, yellow and white. The Gerbera daisy is used in bouquets and other arrangements. This type of daisy means beauty.
I think that's what makes daisies so popular. Some people tend to the more intricate look of an amaryllis, the personality of a rose or the volume of a hyacinth want - but most would be a simple daisy pick on one of these show offs.
I wonder why? I do not. I think we all its purity and simplicity. Call it innocence if you want. Remember the days when you make daisy chains? Can not get enough of that these days, can we.
