Garland Daisies thrive throughout the Mediterranean region, where they originated and have grown for centuries. In addition to being an attractive garden or prairie plant, this daisy has fragrant greens that are often featured in Chinese, Japanese, and Taiwanese cuisine. They make a flavorful addition to beef and lamb dishes, as well as producing an excellent tea when brewed. As a medicinal herb, this plant was an ancient Chinese remedy for treating headaches. 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.
