The noted American botanist and horticultural expert Luther Burbank introduced this popular flower in 1901, a product of more than 15 years of selection and breeding. He named this stunning little flower after California’s Mt. Shasta, a snow-capped mountain. 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.
