As we continue on our journey to discover the meaning behind various types of flower, today we'll be taking a closer look at Gerberas. Immediately recognisable by their broad faces and cheery appearance, gerberas instantly convey a vibe of happiness and vibrancy. Interestingly, gerberas are the fifth most popular for flower arrangements (after roses, carnations, chrysanthemums, and tulips.)
And the meaning behind gerberas? Well, this flower is thought to represent... innocence. But wait, we hear you cry, aghast before your monitors. Isn't that what freesias were said to signify already? Well spotted! Whilst there is some overlap there, gerberas are said to also be associated with cheerfulness and modesty as well. So as you can see, the character of this flower is slightly different (freesias are associated more with friendship and perseverance).
The cheerful nature of gerbera bouquets means that they lend themselves well to get well soon gifts. An arrangement of fresh gerberas is sure to bring a ray of sunshine to anyone who is feeling poorly or in need of mood improvement. Gerberas are also ideal for expressing congratulations and for welcoming the arrival of a new baby.
