English Daisy

The term "daisy" comes from the Anglo-Saxon words doeges-sege meaning "the eye of the day". This is thought to relate to the fact that the flowers open at sunup and close at sundown or because of the yellow, sun-like center of the flowers.

There are about a dozen species in this genus native to Europe, the Mediterranean and northern Africa.
