daisiesSpring is a time of hope and new adventures in Baton Rouge. The flowers are beginning to bloom, the greenery is back in full force, and the weather is perfect for getting outside and leaving the winter slump behind. To celebrate the season, the floral designers at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts are creating beautiful arrangements that showcase April’s official flower, the daisy. Daisies are a consistently popular springtime icon.

 

Did You Know? The daisy is actually two flowers in one. The yellow center is comprised of tiny clusters of individual disc flowers; the white petals are in reality a second flower which surrounds these.

The beautifully bright and cheerful hues such as hot pink, orange, yellow and red guarantee that these spring blooms will stand out, even as they blend beautifully with many other spring wildflowers. Although the gerberas and the white and yellow variety are of the same family, many are not aware these bright flowers are actually daisies. In fact, the family of plants to which these flowers belong make up about 10% of the worlds’ plants, and also includes sunflowers.
