The English Daisy is commonly found in lawns, meadows, riverbanks, and along roadsides; it is considered the flower of innocence, and a favorite of children. The poet Chaucer was the first to give this flower the name “day’s eye,” because of its habit of opening in the morning and closing at night. A common saying of the era stated, “When you can put your foot on seven daisies, summer is come.” The English Daisy’s Latin name “Bellis perennis” translates as “pretty everlasting.” Because of its properties as an astringent herb, herbal medicine has included the daisy for centuries; in ancient Rome, physicians would use tinctures made of this plant for disinfecting wounds on the battlefield.
