Innocence, loyal love, purity.
The natural simplicity of the Daisy, Snowdrop and Bluebell has inspired lovers, artists, and poets to sing their praises, but all carry a warning. The Daisy represents secrecy, a love that conquers all and is associated with the fifth wedding anniversary. The Daisy may be a symbol of innocence and purity, but it also warns that a suitor may be untrue. It can mean "loyal love", & "I will never tell". It can also symbolize new beginnings.
The origin of the word Daisy is Anglo Saxon "daes eage" literally meaning "day's eye". It was called this because daisies open at dawn as the day is just beginning.
The Daisy flower is composed of white petals and yellow centers, although the flowers are sometimes a pink or rose color. Daisies are 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.
