April Birthday Flowers

Great April Birthday Gift Idea: Send Gerbera Daisies with the Road Warrior, TSA-approved travel kit from KaBloom!

Cheerful daisies are the birth flowers for those born in the month of April. Daisies are the April birth flower partly because they represent innocence, or in this case, the innocence of spring. As the first full month of spring, and the one in which most new blooms begin to form, April is a month of purity and simplicity.

Gerbera daisies are both pure and simple, and are one of the most popular types of daisies around. Their vibrant, colorful blooms are favorites among florists and flower lovers alike. They have large, disc-shaped heads and long, fuzzy stems. Gerbera daisies can be found in nearly every color under the sun and have become a classic symbol of sunny times.

Other favorite daisies are the black-eyed Susan and the Shasta daisy.

A sweet legend surrounds the daisy flower. As the story goes, a lovely nymph wanted to escape the exuberant advances of several potential suitors and so turned herself into a daisy. Because of this, the flower has come to stand for modesty, innocence, and simplicity

As it happens, the daisy family is one of the largest in the world of botany. There are over 1200 species of flowers, and many other well-known flowers actually stem from the daisy family. These include chrysanthemums, dahlias, marigolds, asters, and sunflowers.

When properly cared for, this birth flower for April babies lasts between five and seven days once cut. In addition, the versatility of the daisy means it looks lovely paired with nearly any other type of arrangement, especially if lots of foliage is involved.
