The Daisy is over 4,000 years old (Flower Expert).Beginning in as early as 2,200 BC Daisies weregrown in Egyptian temple gardens (GardenGuides).The Egyptians also used the Daisies to treatillnesses (Garden Guides). In England the Daisy was most used to cure eyeproblems and then later on for stomach ulcersand many other sicknesses (Garden Guides).King Henry the VII was the most well associatedKing with Daisies.Many also associated the daisy with love anromance (Flower Expert).
The daisy has survived more epidemics thansome humans have. The daisy has out livedthe our great ancestors.The daisy has evolved in many ways includingin the species diversity. The size, number andshape of each daisy flower is different.Including adapting to different environments.Some daisies are also now related to the blackeyed Susan from interbreeding strains andhuman breeding, of the beautiful flower(Garden Guides).But there are laws on Evolution (Gibb).
The daisy usually lives in a controlledtemperature at all times (Cox). This is theideal condition for the daisy to survive.Different species of daisies can live indiverse conditions. The daisy is also knownas a wild flower and can be seen alonghighways and forests. As seen in thepictures the daisies are growing well with abuttercup (top) and some hydrangea(bottom). Most daisies thrive in the summermonths (Gibb).
The daisy lives off of its environment toget the nutrients and water needed tosurvive. In most places there is anabundance of daisies. The white daisywill reflect the sunlight meaning a coolerenvironment compared to the blackdaisy that will absorb the sunlight(Rice).To the daisy are many predators areherbivores, including but not limited torabbits and groundhogs (Harding).Mostly wild daisies are at randomdistribution from birds and wind. Otherdaisies are bought and planted.
Daisies are mostly perennial plants.The daisies stem can reach up toone foot in length (Garden Guides).They grow towards the sun and alsoclose at night when the sun goesdown. The daisies open when thesun then again comes up. Theanatomy of such a plant has a greatdeal of surprising information forthe stems and leafs of the daisy(Smith).
There are two main dominant species ofdaisies (Harding).The gerbera daisy can vary in colors such asred, pink, yellow, orange, and purple withblack centers.The Shasta daisy was created in 1901 byLuther Burbank. There are over 100 kinds ofthe Shasta daisy.The Gloriosa daisy was created in the 1950’sand has a close relation to the black eyedSusan.There are many more kinds of daisies (GardenGuides). With a fine degrees of control(Brennan).As well in a flower farm this year they have justcreated a new kind of Shasta daisy calledBroadway Lights (Perennial Plants).
There are many different types ofpollution that affects the daisy andtheir environment that they live in.There is acid rain from all the waterpollution. Also there are car exhaustfumes that can also lead to this. Litterand trash can hurt the daisies as well.Yes the daisy has survived over 4,000years but would you like to beresponsible for its extinction fromhuman pollution?
