Awww Gerber Daisies, one of my favorite flowers and also a hit with Brides who want fantastic natural flowers in vibrant colors. But she is a temperamental flower. Many Brides who are do it them selvers think she will be easy to use. They are if you know a few tricks. There is a lot of back and forth on the toughness of a gerber daisy. I have experienced both sides of the Gerber Daisy dilemma and even with the proper handling they can go south on you depending on a lot of things and I have had them be wonderful. Yes they are pretty tough if treated properly and care is given to how long they will be out of water. Its their stem that makes them susceptible to drooping and looking sad as well as the flower petals. Keeping them in water constantly is the best way to avoid droopage, but unfortunately as with all flowers the heat of the day will determine how well they withstand. When you purchase your Gerber daisies you want to make sure that the heads are in good condition and not missing petals, other wise your daisy will look lop sided.
