Daisy – the April Birth Flower

Celebrate April birthdays with a bouquet of daisies. This April birth flower symbolizes childhood innocence or according to the Farmer’s Almanac they were given between friends to keep a secret.

Many flowers share the common name daisy. It comes from the English name “days eye” referring to the fact many daisy flowers open during the day and close as the sun sets.

Bellis perennis, known as English daisy, is most often designated as the April birth flower. It is hardy in zones 4 to 8, grows about 6 inches tall and flowers from spring through mid summer.

You will find this plant listed as an attractive perennial or nasty weed. In the south the plants often burn out after flowering during the heat of summer. In cooler climates they are often dug after flowering to maximize enjoyment and minimize spread.

The young leaves can be eaten in salads or cooked.

A bit more information: Sweet peas are also considered the April birth flower. This is especially true in April. This flower represents modesty and simplicity.
