The Daisy Flower: It’s Meanings and Symbolism


When someone is talking about a daisy, what specifically do they mean? Usually, they just mean a small white round flower with a round yellow or blue center. When botanists refer to daisies, they mean an entire group of plant species in the plant family called Asteraceae, which also includes aster flowers, ragweed and sunflowers. Daisies can be found in many parts of the world, including North America, Europe and Africa.

What Does the Daisy Flower Mean?

At first, it can seem that there can be as many meanings for daisies as there are species of daisies. However, the most generally accepted meanings are:

  • Innocence, especially with white daisies with yellow or pale centers.
  • Purity – also shown by daisies that are as white as possible.
  • New beginnings, which is why they are often found in bouquets for new mothers or as gifts for children.
  • True love – because each daisy flower is really two flowers blended together in harmony.
  • That the sender can keep a secret. Keeping a secret is one way a person can exhibit that they truly love another.

Entomological Meaning of the Daisy Flower

The modern English word daisy comes from an Old English word that’s impossible to spell and next to impossible to pronounce. The important thing is that the Old English word meant “day’s eye” because daisy flowers only opened during the daytime.

“Daisy” also became a slang word for something of excellent quality, as shown in books printed in the early 1800s. Over the generations, “that’s a daisy” became changed to “that’s a doozy.”


Symbolism of the Daisy Flower

In modern Paganism, daisies symbolize the sun just because they seem to appear like stars or suns.

In Victorian times, different species of daisies symbolized different things:

  • Michaelmas daisy (Aster amellus) symbolizes a farewell or a departure.
  • Gerber daises (those in the Gerbera genera) symbolize cheerfulness. They were often paired with ferns, which symbolize sincerity.
  • English daisy (Bellis perennis) symbolizes innocence. They were often paired with primroses, which is a symbol for childhood and/or moss, which symbolized mother love.

The Daisy Flower Facts

  • A single daisy flower is actually made up of two separate flowers. The center petals are one flower surrounded by the “rays” of another flower.
  • Daisies grow all year round.
  • Daisies are naturally resistant to many plant diseases and pests, which makes them perfect flowers for new gardeners.
  • Unfortunately, the English daisy (Bellis perennis) is considered a stubborn weed in North American lawns.

Meaningful Botanical Characteristics of the Daisy Flower

  • For centuries, children and really bored child minders have used daisies in order  to make daisy chains.
  • Daisy leaves are edible. Some people add them to their salads.
  • Wild daisy tea is said to be good for ailments of the throat, for putting on open wounds and as a “blood purifier” (whatever that means) but there aren’t any clinical studies to back up these traditional claims.
  • People who are allergic to ragweed are very likely to also be allergic to daisies or any products made from daisies.

The Daisy Flowers Message Is…

The daisy’s message is, ultimately, one of hope and renewal. In sending daisies, the sender hopes the viewer will see the world as they once did as a child. Just be sure not to send daisies to anyone with ragweed allergies.

    May26 In my opinion that a property foreclosure can have a significant effect on the client’s life. Property foreclosures can have a 6 to ten years negative effects on a client’s credit report. A new borrower having applied for a mortgage or any kind of loans as an example, knows that the worse credit rating will be, the more complicated it is to secure a decent mortgage. In addition, it may possibly affect a borrower’s capacity to find a good place to lease or rent, if that gets the alternative real estate solution. Good blog post.

You’ll need to install the main video recording app and the service app which will enable your Pre to record high quality 480×320 h.264 video quality. Go to YouTube and search under ‘Palm Pre kitten’ to see a sample.

    Hey Riddhi – There are many Indians working on board cruise ships so you definitely can apply. And you don’t have to worry about cruise lines not being around India. There are about 18 major cruise lines in the world and you just apply to those and if you get hired, they send you to one of their ships which can be located anywhere in the world. Chances are you’ll end up on a ship in Europe or North America/Caribbean as those are the two areas that have the most ships these days.

My husband and I always say, we’re not celebrating Jesus, just winter, and that fat guy in the red suit that makes all of our materialistic dreams come true!

    Fluorittoman hammastahnan käyttö ei ole turhaa: esim. Urtekramin hammastahnat sisältävät liitua, joka hioo hampaita hellästi, eli puhdistaa. Ihmettelen jonkun mainitseman hammaslääkärin lausuntoa siitä, että fluorittomalla tahnalla harjaaminen olisi turhaa. Tärkeintä on hammashygienia ja se, että juo vettä ruoan päälle + harjaa hampaat, ei niinkään fluoripitoisuus. Ja eikö kuulosta aika epäilyttävältä, että fluorihammastahnaa ei saisi niellä.. kyllähän sitä aina jonkin verran nieluun päätyy! Puhumattakaan hammaslääkärien laittamasta fluorilakasta, joka tuntuu liukenevat suoraan nieluun.

    Aimee: Excellent observations. The bottom line is that health is a personal responsibility, and the more one understands that and takes control…the better their health will be over the course of their life. The brainwashing exists to convince us otherwise. Sadly, it is very effective.
