Daisy (Asteraceae) is a flowering perennial plant characterised by the star-shaped inflorescence. The name derives from old English meaning day’s eye, due to the fact that the flowers close at dusk and open their petals at dawn.
The Blue Daisy, also known as the Himalayan Aster, has bright blue petals and a yellow eye.
