Gerbera species/ hybrids;

efloraofindia:”Id 05112011MR3’’ diffferentiate Gerbera,Asters and Zinias Pune: help requested to understand and identify Gerbera, Asters and Zinias. I get very confused between the three.

Can Gerbera be called bulbous plant: Gerbera is classified as bulbous plant in most gardening books although it does not produce bulbs/tubers/corms/rhizomes and is usually propagated by division of plants. Why is it called so ?

Gerbera can’t be called a bulbous plant because it is not grown from a bulb.
The plants produce root suckers which is divided to grow a new plant. But it looks like a bulbous plant as all the leaves and flowers emerges from the suckers. Looking for info from experts
