Daisy (Bellis perennis)

Bellis perennis L. (common daisy), a herbaceous perennial plant of meadows, lawns and other grassy areas, is a member of the Asteraceae family.

Daisy means "day's eye". This refers to the way the flower opens and closes with the sun. The daisy flower symbolizes innocence, a loyal love and gentleness. Daisy flower is a powerful healing herb that works great and it’s been used for thousands of years without side effects.

It is native to western, central and northern Europe, but is commonly found as an invasive plant in North America. These classic perennials have narrow serrated leaves and white flowers with yellow disk centers. They range from about 10 inches to several feet tall and include variations with single, double, frilly, or ruffled petals.

There are several theories surrounding the Latin name of Bellis, as some authors believe it wais derived from the latin word (bellus) meaning pretty, whereas others believe that it derives from the word (bello), which is latin for (war), this association may be due to the plant’s long standing reputation as a wound herb, as well as the fact that it grew on most battlefields.
