Gerbera 'Sweet Glow' Overview

Gerbera 'Garvinea 'Sweet Glow' is one of the hardier Gerbera cultivars. A bushy, semi-evergreen perennial, it produces daisy-like, semi-double, long-lasting flowers that emerge singly from basal rosettes of leaves. Flowering throughout the summer, the large blooms are a dark, warm, orange colour, with light green centres. Gerberas need to be protected from frost so are usually grown under glass in temperate regions. In other locations, they'll be seen in sunny borders - from courtyard settings to informal coastal gardens. When grown indoors, they like bright but filtered light, to be watered regularly, fed monthly during the growing season and kept moist during the winter. They should be potted on in spring. Outdoors, Gerberas appreciate moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Patio pots - filled with a loam-based potting compost - that can be brought indoors in winter, are an ideal solution! Gerbera 'Sweet Glow' also make excellent cut flowers and is the preferred selling name for Gerbera 'Garglow' (PBR). This cultivar is protected under intellectual property laws by Plant Breeders' Rights. These provide the breeder of new plants exclusive control over the plant material for a set amount of time.
