Origin of Gerbera cut flowers
Gerbera flower belongs to the family of composite plants (Asteraceae) us originally from Africa and Asia. It is one of the most famous and popular cut flowers in the world. Originally it was known as African or Ethiopian aster. In the 18th century it was named Gerbera after Traugott Gerber.
Gerbera and its meaning
Gerberas are little sun worshippers and direct their little heads towards the rays of the sun. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the gerbera symbolizes cheerfulness, friendship and good humor.
In the language of flowers, it also stands for honesty and appreciation. So when you buy a bouquet of gerbera and give it as a gift, you can express, for example, 'You make my life more beautiful, thank you for that'.
Germini - the little sister of the Gerbera
Mini gerbera, also known as germini, is a smaller cultivation of the mother flower. The germini is very often used in cut flower bouquets.
The flowers of the classic gerbera are larger than 10 centimeters. In the mini version, on the other hand, the flower is much smaller and measures around 7 centimeters in diameter. So the difference between gerbera and germini is only in the size of the flower.
