Daisies

The origin of the word Daisy is the Anglo Saxon "daes eage" which literally mean "day's eye". It was called this because daisies open at dawn as the day just starts to begin.

Daisy, any of several species of garden plants belonging to the family Asteraceae (also called Compositae). The name daisy commonly denotes the oxeye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare) and the English, or true, daisy (Bellis perennis). These and other plants called daisies are distinguished by a flower composed of 15 to 30 white ray flowers surrounding a bright yellow disk flower.

The oxeye daisy is native to Europe and Asia but has become a common wild plant in the United States. This perennial grows to a height of about 2 feet (60 cm) and has oblong, incised leaves and long petioles (leafstalks).

Its solitary flowers are about 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) in diameter, and the ray flowers are white in color. The cultivated Shasta daisy (L. ✕superbum) resembles the oxeye daisy but has larger flower heads that may reach a diameter of 4 inches (10 cm).

A Daisy symbolizes innocence and purity. It can also symbolize new beginnings. The flower meaning of daisy is "loyal love" and "I will never tell".
