The daisy seems so simple and unassuming, but in reality, this is truly a fascinating flower! The common daisy which we are familiar with – with its iconic white petals and golden center – is one of a family that boasts over 23,000 varieties, with cousins as diverse as the artichoke and the sunflower. In the month of April, we celebrate the daisy as the official birth flower, and at Rose Hill Flowers we have designed beautiful daisy bouquets and arrangements sure to make your loved ones smile on their special day.
How Many Flowers Do You Count? The daisy is known as a composite flower, which means it is actually a flowering plant made up of many, singular “florets”. Take a close look at the colorful disk center to see the many tiny flowers that make up a single bloom. Incredibly, each “petal” is actually a small flower as well, making this flower a lot more complex than it initially appears!
When deciding upon the perfect daisy birthday bouquet, you may wish to consider the gerbera daisy. This popular variety of daisy exhibits vivid colors such as red, orange, yellow, and hot pink, making it very well-qualified to represent the festivity of a birthday! There are a few other attributes of the gerbera which make it a favorite of floral designers – it is a hardy flower with a thick, sturdy stem, it remains vibrant for a long period of times after being cut, and it does not close up at night like many of the daisy family.
But perhaps the most striking feature of the gerbera is the large, generous flower bursting with color. The flowers make gorgeous standalone bouquets, or can easily be combined with virtually any other bloom, creating striking color combinations that aesthetically amazing. Don’t just settle for an ordinary bouquet of flowers – send a professional floral design from Rose Hill Flowers – whether for April birthdays or for any of your upcoming Nashville events and occasions.
