Hello, Spring!

April 18, 2014

After a long winter, warm weather has finally arrived and spring is in the air! There is no better way to celebrate than with a fresh bouquet of flowers from yours truly. Here at Tiger Lily we are getting in some of the most beautiful spring flowers. Above you see one of our Gerbera Daisy’s, a bright and vibrant pink is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face! These eye catching daisy’s are also available in a variety of colors and pastels. The Gerbera Daisy, a member of the sunflower family, is named after the German┬ábotanist Traugott Gerber. This flower has approximately 30 species of its kind in the wild and range all the way from South America, to Africa, and even to Asia! It is sometimes referred to as the “African Daisy”. This beautiful flower is not only the fifth most used cut flower in the world, but also serves as a model organism in the world of science for the study of flower formation! Wow! Who knew such a gorgeous flower could also be so important in science. The Gerbera Daisy is truly one of a kind.
