A new year is a time to move forward and create new goals and new habits, create new favorites and new opportunities. Welcome new happiness and new beginnings with the 2020 Flower of the Year – The Gerbera Daisy. Daisies get their name from the Old English phrase “day’s eye” since the flower blossoms at the first sight of dawn. Daisies have added health benefits outside of being easy on the eyes – they are eatable and have a high level of vitamin C. In the past they have been brewed into teas to relieve indigestion, coughs, and back pain.

With over 20,000 varieties, daisies are one of the most abundant flower types. The Gerbera Daisy specifically is the fifth most popular flower in the world and it’s not hard to see why.
