A new gerbera variety “Red Line” was released by the National Institute of Horticultural & Herbal Science (NIHHS) in 2008. A cross was made between “Mirage” with orange and double and “Rose” with red and semi-double in 2005. After investigation of the characteristics for four years (from 2005 to 2008), it was selected specially for the use of cut flower. “Red Line” is a vigorous cultivar with red (RHS R44B), black center and semi-double. The average flower diameter is 12.7 cm, large flower. And inner ray floret and disc diameter are 8.10 cm and 2.80 cm, respectively. It produces a large yield with continuous supply of flowers and has adequate peduncle height. We believe that “Red Line” has a great potential for expanding cultivated area of domestic gerbera cultivars and increasing farmers-income.
