Welcome to the whimsical world of flowers, where every petal holds a secret meaning and every bloom represents a unique character trait. The language of flowers is a mysterious and symbolic one, and it's a world worth exploring.
Did you know that each month is associated with a particular flower that embodies a positive trait? If you were born in April, you're in for a treat because the flower of your birth month is none other than the darling Daisy!
Enter the Daisy – the flower that looks most like… well, a flower. Much like our first flower we drew in kindergarten, the Daisy has oval shaped petals and a center face that is signature of a typical blossom.
Daisies are commonly known for their opening-and-closing of petals following morning and night. They close at night much like how we close our eyes to sleep at night and open in the morning. This phenomenon led this beautiful blossom to be called “Day’s eye” and eventually coined as “Daisy”.
The Daisy was first discovered in the late 1700s by a German botanist, Paul Dietrich Giseke. Since then, Daisies have been used in traditional medicines, teas, and other herbal remedies. These days, Daisies are most common in flower arrangements across the world. From the large Gerbera Daisy to the little Oxeye Daisy, each species brings a dainty look to floral arrangements.
Just like every other flower, Daisies have specific meanings and represent beautiful traits. While we can go on about colors and their meanings, the Daisy flower is commonly known for innocence and purity. When given in flower bouquets, Daisies are symbols of friendship and a genuine care for one another.
