In Port Charlotte Florida can you dig up existing gerbea daises and replant them now, or will they die? Do they come back every year? Do they multiply?

Gerbera or Transvaal daisy (Gerbera jamesonii) are perennials in Florida but annuals in most other parts of the country. You can dig and transplant at any time of year in south Florida and during spring and summer in north and central Florida. If your plants have multiple crowns you can dig and divide them and then replant. Separate the crowns using a clean sharp knife or pruning shears. Remove dead roots, old decaying leaves and one half of all the lower, mature leaves and replant immediately. Keep the transplants moist until they are re-established. Hope this answers all your questions!
