The world's first Hardy Gerbera in a range of bright, zingy neon colours, the Garvinea series was launched 3 years ago to great acclaim across Europe. Bringing the popular florists' gerbera flowers to a garden perennial, they give an amazing 5 months of colour from spring to autumn every year - not many plants can do that!
Well, now they have got even better. The breeders in Holland who created them have developed an improved series with much bigger flowers, and even longer lasting performance. called the 'Sweet Series', they were introduced in 2014, and we are pleased to be able to once again get some of the limited stock.
Retaining the same benefits of being winter hardy to around -8C (although avoid severe winter wet), and flowering for 3 seasons of colour, their highly distinctive flowers simply keep coming - up to 50 on a 2 year old plant. We love them in traditional terracotta pots, in the sun, or grown in well-drained borders at the front, where they will amaze you with their persistence of flowering and sheer flower number. In winter they are herbaceous, so die back completely underground, to emerge bigger and better next year.
You will get one plant each about to flower of:
'Sweet Glow' - deep warm orange
'Sweet Smile' - warm honey yellow
'Sweet Spice' - bright magenta purple
