Q.Gerbera Daisies

Anonymous added on February 9, 2014 | Answered

Are Gerbera daisies perennials in U.S. zone 7? I planted seveal Gerbera daisies in patio containers last spring. I deadheaded as and when (but not religiously, I confess) recommended. Can I expect that the plants will “come back” this spring? Or, should I remove plants from patio containers?

Gerbera daisies are typically considered to be tender perennials in your regions and annuals in cooler areas. By tender, this means it can be affected by the cold and may or may not return, depending on how well it's been protected. So pretty much it's a wait and see kind of thing. Hopefully, your winter has been mild enough to allow the plants to return. In the future, you may want to cover the plants with mulch or move pots to a protected area.
