are among the most popular of flowers. They are named from the old
Anglo-Saxon language daes eage, which means day's eye and belong
to the Daisy Family of Compositae, now known as Asteraceae in flowering
plants. English Daisy is a serious weed in the northwest United
A Daisy flower is composed of white petals and yellow
centres, although the flowers are sometimes a pink or rose colour.
Stems of Daisies are smooth and leafless and support a single flower.
Daisies are not not one flower. A Daisy is made up of two types
of flowers - disk florets and petal-like white ray florets. The
Disk florets are at the center and the ray florets are at the periphery.
But these are arranged to give the impression of being a single
flower. This arrangement on Daisies is a type of inflorescence known
as a capitulum.
