A new bright yellow gerbera (Gerbera hybrida Hort .) cultivar, ‘Joyful’, was released by the Flower Research Institute of Gyeongsangnam-do Agricultural Research & Extension Service in 2013. ‘Joyful’ was developed in Changwon from 2005 to 2006 and is a cross between ‘Chowoo’, a semidouble type gerbera cultivar with yellow-orange colored flowers, and ‘Focus’, a semi-double type cultivar with yellow colored flowers. The characteristics trials for selection were conducted from 2007 to 2009. ‘Joyful’ has large, semi-double type flowers with yellow (RHS, 12-A) ray florets and a brown central part. It also has a stable flower shape, strong peduncles, and a vase life of 12.8 days. The average flower yield of ‘Joyful’ was determined in greenhouse trials carried out from 2008 to 2010 and is 49.2 stems per plant per year. ‘Joyful’ was demonstrated to be a new cultivar based on ploidy tests and RAPD analysis and was registered (Grant No. 4574) to the Korea Seed and Variety Service (KSVS) for commercialization in 2013.
