CROCHET PATTERNS (Crochet Flower Pattern #152 Orange Gerbera) – 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet Project

 

About Gerbera

Gerbera is an ornamental plant related to sunflowers native to South America, Africa and Asia. It is the 5th most used cut flower in the world.

The plant supports a large flower head which is quite complex even though it looks like a single flower. It is actually composed out of numerous individual florets ray florets and disc florets. The ray florets are arranged on the circumference of the flower head and look like petals, while the disk florets make up the crowded centre. The florets are hosted by a receptacle.
