Gerbera daisies are tender plants, meaning they will not survive your winter weather, so they are labeled annuals in your growing region. However, they are really perennial plants. You can pot yours up and take it indoors over the winter months. After the flowers are spent, cut off the flowering stems and in a few weeks the plants will produce more flowers. They should flower every few weeks all summer long.

Enjoy!
