Meet the FleuroStar award winner

Fleuroselect Award Winner

Forget about having to stake the stems of these huge, semi-double daisies . . . in fact, forget about having to cut them. Cartwheel® Strawberry Twist is the first-ever Gerbera Daisy bred just for flowerpots and window boxes, with a habit so compact that you can have your plant and enjoy your flowers, too.

Just 15 inches high in full bloom, this beautiful gerbera sets big 3- to 4-inch singles and semi-doubles in a range of unusual pastel shades, including many bi- and tri-colors. Rose, pink, yellow, cream, orange, red, and light green are among the shades to be found on these festive flowers, which face upward (completely obliterating the foliage at the height of bloomtime). They begin in early summer and continue all season, sitting above fresh green foliage that remains healthy and lush on plants just 15 inches wide. Magnificent.

Cartwheel® Strawberry Twist makes a nice change from traditional Gerberas, which sport enormous rosettes of foliage surrounding each flowering stem. It is an improvement over other dwarf varieties as well, with its big flowers and neat habit. It blooms before any other variety, beginning gerbera season with an unforgettable burst of color.

Cartwheel® Strawberry Twist was awarded the FleuroStar Award by Fleuroselect, Europe's most prestigious plant award organization, and we think it's going to revolutionize the way you garden with this tender perennial. Now you can plant Gerberas the way you do petunias and geraniums—in every available flowerpot and tub, in combo plantings, and in color bowls. It makes the ideal window box display, and flourishes in any sunny setting with well-drained, enriched soil or soilless potting mix. So easy, so long-lasting.

Pick up an extra packet of Cartwheel® Strawberry Twist just for gifting. What a spectacular hostess gift, housewarming present, or birthday gift a planter filled with this blooming marvel will make. Stock up now. Zones 8-11, but grown as an annual everywhere.
