Colour of the gods
Orange like the sunset
fiery streaks of dusk
maybe the most vibrant colour
God dared to create.
The Gerbera finds its source in Asia, South America and Tasmania. The Dutch botanic professor Gronovius discovered the plant species in 1737 and named it after his collogue Traugott Gerber, a German doctor collecting flowers in Danish Jutland at that time.
In current times It is the fifth most used cut flower in the world (after rose, carnation, chrysanthemum, and tulip). Enough facts, enjoy the picture:)
''Gerbera jamesonii'' is a species of flowering plant in the genus ''Gerbera''. It is indigenous to South Eastern Africa and commonly known as the Barberton daisy, the Transvaal daisy, and as Barbertonse madeliefie in Afrikaans.
