One of the most common and popular types of flower is the daisy, which is part of the asteraceae family that also includes asters and sunflowers. It is believed that the flower’s name came from a combination of the words “day’s eye,” because the head of the daisy, unlike many flowers, closes completely at night and reopens in the morning.
In addition to being a popular decorative plant among gardeners, daisies are incredibly popular as cut flowers, as well. In particular, gerbera daisies make a great bouquet, especially when trying to communicate pure, innocent love. Gerbera daisies grow in a wide range of colors, including pink, red, orange, yellow, blue, and white. Some daisies of this species even boast petals of multiple colors, black centers, and brightly colored markings on the tips of its florets. For this reason, gerbera daisies are especially popular among birds, bees, and butterflies, which are attracted to their vibrant appearance. Speaking of the birds and the bees, if they love gerbera daisies, imagine how much your sweetheart will appreciate a beautiful bouquet of these flowers!
