April Flower of the Month

It's April and the flower of the month is the daisy. This flower is so unpretentious and uncomplicated, it means innocence. The daisy is commonly known as Transvaal daisy, Barberton daisy, African daisy, Veldt daisy. The gerbera daisy comes in three sizes, miniature at 2-3 inches in diameter, standard at 3 -5 inches in diameter, and giant at 5-6 inches diameter. The gerbera daisy comes virtually in every hue except for blue-green, blue and blue violet which has made it a favorite flower with flower lovers. A perennial favorite, this April birth flower is perfect in floral bouquets and it is usually made the focal point specially if the gerbera used is the standard size or larger.

The gerbera daisy is a native to South Africa, thus, the name African daisy.
