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:)

''G. jamesonii'' was first described by Robert Jameson in 1889 while exploring the Barberton area in the Lowveld region of Mpumalanga Province, South Africa. It was the first species of Gerbera to be the subject of a scientific description, studied by J.D. Hooker in ''Curtis's Botanical Magazine'' in 1889.

The flag and coat of arms of the Province of Mpumalanga include a depiction of this flower.
