Daisies are the colorful Birth Flower of April that convey happiness and cheer all over the world. They belong to the Chrysanthemum family and are perennials. They are said to symbolize innocence and new beginnings, and they’re sometimes used to predict love’s fortune, too.

Daisies come in dozens of shapes, sizes, colors and varieties. They are actually two flowers in one - the cluster of tiny yellow disc petals that form the "eye" and then the larger outer floret petals at the periphery. Their name, "daisy," is thought to come from the Old English "daes eage", meaning "day's eye” because of the way a daisy opens up at dawn.

And they’re more than just a pretty face! Daisy leaves are edible and can be used in salads (they are similar to an artichoke and are high in Vitamin C) and some kinds of daisies, such as echinacea, arnica, and chamomile, have medicinal properties that include relief of indigestion and the easing of coughs and congestion.
