Because of their unique pattern of multicolored rings, these daisies have become very popular. Originally, this family of flowers grew in 15th century China as an herb; Europeans began cultivating them in the 17th century. This particular variety of tricolor daisy comes from the coasts of northern Africa, or what was formerly known as the Barbary Coast. The poet Chaucer was the first to give this family of flowers the name “day’s eye,” because of their 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.” In the language of flowers, daisies symbolize innocence, simplicity, and modesty.
