What comes to mind when you think about April? You may remember childhood times, warm April showers and flowers sprouting up in the front yard. Spring evokes happy memories and good feelings; and to help celebrate this special season, the daisy has been chosen as the official birth flower. The daisy’s meaning represents childhood innocence and purity, and so makes a fitting bloom to celebrate your April born family and friends.
The white and yellow daisy is well known and loved. You may not realize, however, that daisies can be found in a wide variety of colors. Rich pastels or vibrant hot pinks, oranges, and purples; and even daisies with multiple colored petals on a single bloom – all are go-to flowers as florists arrange spring bouquets.
The daisy is one of our favorite spring flowers, but it is also part of a much larger family of plants. Close relatives of the daisy include the sunflower, the marigold, the zinnia and the chrysanthemum. All of these plants are known as vascular plants, which means they circulate water throughout their stem, leaves and to the petals. The sunflower and the daisy also share their love for sunlight; as the sunflower turns its face towards the sun, the daisy closes up at night and only opens its petals in the sun’s rays.
As April’s birth flower, the daisy is the perfect gift to send to all your friends and relatives for their special day. And as the unofficial ambassador of spring, the daisy is also the perfect flower to add to all of your spring bouquets and arrangements. They are always guaranteed to bring a carefree joy and hopeful ambiance to any room they grace. The florists at Gordon Boswell are happy to help you to choose the perfect flowers for every occasion, and to deliver them in beautiful style throughout Fort Worth.
