Gerber Daisy, aka, Gerber GarvineaEven when they are not blooming this plant  has large green leaves that are a great contrast to many other plants in the garden.  So many perennials in the Central Texas area have small gray leaves and when they are not blooming the plants are not as attractive. It's hard to find plants with large leafy foliage and large blooms that are so hardy.  So why not try something new in your garden this year.  If not available in your garden center try finding them on line.  Try this new variety of Gerber Daisy and have fun using the blooms in a beautiful cut flower arrangement.
