Gerbera daisies are a perennial in zones 10 and 11, and they are an annual in every other hardiness zone, according to Better Homes and Gardens. They come in every color, except for true purples and true blues, and thrive in full sun locations in a garden.
Gerbera daisies grow and bloom during the spring, summer and fall months, notes Better Homes and Gardens. They prefer a moist soil, with a light fertilization. Gerbera daisies typically have long, thick stems. Better Homes and Gardens state they last a week after cutting, making them a good flower option for arrangements or bouquets.
