Beautiful White Daisy Flower


DAISY. Poets have been inspired by the daisy. Everyone knows some species or other. It may be the common white oxeye field daisy, or black-eyed Susan with its yellow-ray flowers, or the English daisy, a dwarf with pink or white rays and a golden center. The daisy takes its name from the early English description of the Bower as “day’s eye”—meaning that its petals close at dusk and open at daybreak to disclose the large eye or center. It belongs to the largest plant family in the world, the composite. It numbers among its more than 10000 members the chrysanthemum, dahlia, sunflower, aster, and dandelion.
