To my surprise, one of my hardy Gerberas has produced another flower!

Thanks - this bloom was a lovely bonus! I wasn't expecting to see it. :-))

This looks slightly different from my pink ones...these were sold as annuals here but were labeled a houseplant as well. I have overwintered mine for a few years, saving quite a few $$ as they cost $5 each & I have 5 or 6 different colors =)

Stunning!!!!

Fh - this is a Gerbera 'Everlast' and I expect that's why it looks different. I have four plants and they all came through two very cold winters, so the claim that they're hardy seems to be true!

Thanks, Pip. :-)

oh so lucky for you then =)

25 Sep, 2010

 

Yes - BUT - I bought a white 'Everlast' last year, and it didn't survive. :-((((

25 Sep, 2010

 

too bad...the name sure didn't fit it though

25 Sep, 2010

 

No - the only reason I can think is that it hadn't had long enough to get established before the frosts hit. :-((

25 Sep, 2010

 

you already have frost??

25 Sep, 2010

 

disregard my last comment...duhhhhh....last year right?

25 Sep, 2010

 

Yes - but the forecast I just saw said that some areas of the UK WILL get frost tonight! Brrrrrrrrrr........

25 Sep, 2010

 

Brrrrr...been cold here today but forecasting nice weather for the upcoming week =)

25 Sep, 2010

 

Our temperatures have dropped this last few days. I don't think they're going back up again, sadly. I could do with a few warm-ish days. :-/

26 Sep, 2010

 

me too...not exactly what I'd call warm this morning but a bit less windy than it was yesterday which makes a big difference.

26 Sep, 2010

 

nice here day time but blooming cold at night

26 Sep, 2010

 

time to get the winter coats out =(

26 Sep, 2010

 

Looks like it! :-((

26 Sep, 2010

 

5.5c in the greenhouse last few nights, and hot aches after potting up Saturday.................brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I am not ready for this.
Lovely Gerbera.

That's lovely Spritz, I nearly bought one in the summer but couldn't believe they would really be hardy. Another for next years list :-))

27 Sep, 2010

 

Yes - I'd like another white one, but I'll hold fire on that, I think.

Thanks, Homebird. I'm feeling chilly indoors - so I do NOT feel like working outside!

27 Sep, 2010

 

Must find out my vest and rubber buttoned liberty bodice.

27 Sep, 2010

 

OH cut a bit more grass, so I wrapped up and clipped some of the edges, then it drizzled on me and in I came. :-((

Liberty bodices? Oh yes - I remember them! lol.

27 Sep, 2010

 

You fibber............lol

27 Sep, 2010

 

I'm not - honestly! I had two sisters, and we all had to wear them - weren't they itchy!

27 Sep, 2010

 

No wonder we had rosy cheeks, had to wear them all day and far too warm in school. How did me and my sister survive childhood with dessert spoon of cod liver oil on Sunday nights followed by Liqufruta (I think that's how you spell it, it tasted foul too) followed by a spoon of malt extract. Must say we hardly ever ailed for anything.

28 Sep, 2010

 

Nice :o) Our plants do suprise us sometimes don't they.

28 Sep, 2010

 

Thanks, LadyE...yes, and this was a really nice surprise!

Homebird, can you remember the name of that malt extract? It used to be advertised on large posters on walls, and we always teased my younger sister by pointing them out - because she hated the stuff. It's driving me potty trying to remember its name....it's on the tip of my tongue, too.

28 Sep, 2010

 

Was it Virol. The more I look at this Gerbera the more it looks like it is made of felt.

28 Sep, 2010

 

YES!!! Thanks - that's the one. :-))))))

It isn't made of felt, honest! lol.

28 Sep, 2010

 

lol...............................:o))
