Spring in Anchorage is a season to celebrate. April is considered a month of new beginnings and new life. The official flower of April, the daisy, perfectly embodies the sense of carefree happiness that spring inspires.
The imagery which a daisy evokes is that of childhood innocence, simplicity and joy. The traditional white flower with the yellow center is perhaps the most well of the daisy family, but there are actually thousands of varieties.
The three most recognized are the:
- African – pink and peach in color, grow low to the ground
- Gerbera daisy (vibrant bright and neon color)
- Shasta – classic white and yellow
Did You Know? The daisy has a large extended family. It is related to other popular flowers such as dahlias, mums, sunflowers, zinnias, marigolds and asters.
The charm of the gerbera daisy in floral arrangements lies in their varied colors and joyful exuberance. From neon pink to sun-kissed orange, these unique flowers will make a stunning standalone bouquet; however they also combine easily with other spring blooms, wildflowers or even exotics such as orchids. Daisies are versatile enough to blend with a wide range of arrangements.
