Gerbera 'Drakensberg Carmine' is one of the hardier gerbera daisy hybrids, thanks to Germany's Peter Ambrosius's breeding modern gerber hybrids back to one of the high elevation species. Gerbera 'Drakensberg Carmine' produces a succession of 2" wide, rich carmine-pink flowers on 15" stalks from June until frost. The dark green, lettuce-shaped leaves remain evergreen until very late fall/winter. Good winter drainage is key for success.
