The simplicity of a daisy’s bright blooms just makes you grin! The name “daisy” comes from the English translation, daes eage, or "day's eye", and their meaning is innocence and joy–making them a perfect symbol of love, family and friendship! Send a refreshing basket of daisies, a colorful daisy bouquet in a glass vase, or a bright arrangement of Gerbera daisies to say Happy Birthday, Happy Wednesday, or for any other reason.
Daisies are considered a perpetually sunny flower. These inviting blooms just make you feel happy, and you can extend that feeling with proper daisy and gerbera care. Potted daisies prefer partial shade or full sunlight and should be watered any time the top two inches of soil dry out. Add fertilizer monthly to encourage blooms. As for preserving cut daisies, trim stems at a 45-degree angle and place them in a vase of cool water with appropriate plant food. Replace water every two days and daisies should last up to two weeks or longer.

Vibrant pinks, fiery reds and oranges, golden yellows, sumptuous blues and purples, and even pale pastels and snowy whites are available when you select Gerbera daisies for your bouquet, which means you can please any loved one with the perfect gift in his or her favorite colors.
