I purchased these Gerbera Daisies last spring for my front porch urns.
They are my favorite flower.
They've lasted all though spring, summer, fall, and even into winter. (That's winter as in, warm AZ winter.) Even though they've stopped blooming, they still look like there's life in them.
Well, sort of.
I thought they'd be through long ago. With this seasons rains, I haven't watered them regularly. Maybe that's why they look like they may finally be giving up the ghost. Or, maybe they're not supposed to last the year long.
I don't know.
Now they look like this.
