Gerbera daisies are from South Africa. They will not survive the winter outdoors except in zones 10 and warmer. You can bring them indoors over winter but they aren't likely to bloom without supplemental lighting. Many gardeners grow these as annuals. If you bring them indoors, provide them with a sunny window and give them less water than in summer.
