The daisy has been a popular flower since ancient times. We have drawings of the bloom on ceramics dating as far back as the Egyptian empire, and daisy hair pins from the Minoan era of Greece have also been discovered. It is believed that the cultures associated the daisy with their sun gods. Not only does the daisy look like the sun, but its petals open and close according to the sun’s rising and setting. In fact, it is an Anglo-Saxon word which gives the modern daisy its name – they called it “daes eag”, or “day’s eye”.
In contemporary times the flower has come to represent a youthful innocence and simplicity, as well as a cheerful and carefree vibe. The daisy is just one member of a huge extended family. (the genus Aster which means “star”). Sunflowers, marigolds, mums, dahlias, asters, and daisies are all branches on the family tree; also associated with this class are herbs like chamomile and echinacea, and produce such as lettuce and artichokes.
