gerbera in the bird bath

I've never been a huge fan of gerbera. They seem too delicate for our rainy summers but they're doing just fine. Could be all the sunshine we're having.... I can never keep water in this bird bath so decided to just keep a planter in it instead. The real test has been the last couple days of nonstop rain. Heavy coastal mist, light drizzle, and heavy heavy rain. And they still look nice! Hmmmmm may have found a new favorite!

I couldn't keep water in my birdbath either, so I piled it with rocks, threw some dirt in to settle into the cracks, and planted several varieties of sedums. They look really cool. And need very little attention. You'd probably have to move yours under the eaves in the Fall/Winter in Juneau, tho.
