Wedding Flowers Gerberas
Gerberas are daisy like flowers atop tubular stems. Gerberas come in an enormous number of colors and combinations. They are commonly available in regular and mini sizes, but there are oversize ones as well, also spider gerbera is unique in its own way with long thin petals. A fresh gerbera is fully open and has firm petals facing somewhat upright, and a sturdy stem. Older gerberas have petals facing slightly downward. The petals are softer to the touch than fresher ones. There are hundreds of shades and color combinations, but no true blue or black. Many are two-toned or variegated, and they may have yellow or black centers. The vase life of gerberas is about 5 to 7 days. To make sure gerbera stems remain straight, keep the supports on the flower heads when conditioning them in water. Let the flowers hydrate this way for several hours.
