The world of flowers has immense mystery and symbolism. Each flower has a meaning and represents a character trait. Selected flowers represent each month in a year along with a positive trait. For those of you born in the month of April, you’re in luck. The flower of the birth month of April is…

 

The 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.

 

 

History of The Daisy

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.

 

What Do Daisies Symbolize?

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.
