The word daisy comes from an Anglo-Saxon translation which means "day's eye", and it was given this name because many species of daisies close up at night and reopen their flower heads in the morning. This is just one of the fascinating facts about this flower that appears simple but offers much more than meets the eye. This complex bloom has over 23,000 species, is related to the artichoke, and is actually many flowers in one - and because it is also the birth flower of April, we thought we would tell you a bit more about it. When purchasing bouquets for April birthdays, or simply celebrating spring - call Breen's Florist. We are committed to bringing all the beauty of springtime to Houston, one floral design at a time.
