How would forming a gerbera daisy be different from the daisy seen in the techniques section of this website?

Maureen - from Williamsville, NY

The structure of Shasta daisies and gerbera daisies is pretty much the same. Both come in a range of sizes, although the typical gerbera daisies seen in bouquets are larger than regular daisies. Shasta daisies are usually white or yellow, while gerbera daisies are brilliant colors of yellow, pink, orange, red, or white. Therefore, you may use the same technique as on the website, but make the slightly petals longer, the center bigger, and go wild with color!
