April’s birth flower is the daisy. While most people think of traditional daisies as small flowers with white petals surrounding a bright yellow center, gardeners know there are more than 20,000 varieties of daisies! in fact, 38 different flower species that share the common name “daisy.” Some of the most well-known are Gerbera daisies, Shasta daisies, gloriosa daisies, marguerite daisies and purple coneflower daisies.
These happy little flowers get their name from the Old English phrase, “daes eage,” meaning “day’s eye.” This phrase refers to the light-sensitive nature of the daisy. The flower opens its petals when the sun begins to shine in the morning and closes its petals at night.

What Are the Meanings of the April Birth Flower?
Blooming at the start of spring, daisies symbolize new beginnings, purity, hope and happiness. The daisy has rich mythological history too. In Norse mythology, daisies were associated with Freya—the goddess of fertility and guardian of new mothers. In Roman mythology, a nymph named Belides transformed herself into a daisy to hide from unwanted attention. And in Celtic mythology, daisies were sprinkled over the earth to cheer up grieving parents. Check out the unique meanings behind the rest of the birth month flowers, too.
