Daisies bring a sunny look to the garden - Sumter Item
For examples of the other subdivision, look closely at a dandelion or chicory flower; in these flowers, all the florets are ray florets, each with a single, large, strap-like petal. There is no eye to these flowers.
The original "daisy" of poetry and literature is the English daisy, Bellis perennis. These squat, cheerful flowers, with yellow discs surrounded by petals in shades from deep-rose to white, originated in the grassy fields of England. Now they are widespread in America, too. Cultivated forms have been bred to have so many rows of petals that their yellow eyes often are hidden. These plants self-sow readily to give seedlings that revert to the "wild" form with a single row of petals, in which case they sometimes are considered weeds as they invade lawns and gardens.
SO MANY FLOWERS WITH "DAISY" IN THEIR NAMES
Nowadays, we gardeners use the word "daisy" to represent many different flowers in the daisy family. In the chrysanthemum genus, for example, there's the ox-eye daisy (C. leucanthemum), its white petals encircling a clear yellow disc. It's a familiar roadside plant. This plant, like the English daisy, was a native of Europe, but has firmly established itself in America (many consider it a weed).
Other perennial chrysanthemum daisies include the Nippon daisy (C. nipponicum), also with white petals, and the painted daisy (C. coccineum), whose red, pink or white flowers begin their show in early summer. The high, or giant daisy (C. uliginosum) is aptly named, because its white flowers tower 4 to 7 feet above the ground. The crown, or garland daisy (C. coronarium) is an annual species, with yellow or white flowers atop 3-foot stalks.
The Erigeron genus and the aster genus also have some "daisies;" the former sometimes are called fleabanes, for their alleged ability to drive away fleas, and the latter sometimes are called Michaelmas daisies. Whereas the fleabanes generally bloom in spring and early summer, the asters bloom from late summer into fall. Two representatives of Erigeron that are good garden daisies are the orange daisy (E. aurantiacus) and the seaside, or double-orange daisy (E. glaucus).
The list goes on, including the perennial globe daisy (Globularia trichosantha), a low-growing native of Asia producing a globular, blue flower; the Swan River daisy (Brachycome iberidifolia), a graceful little annual with blue, rose or white flowers... Jan 4, 2020

Needle-work, love create the perfect Chico Christmas window - Chico Enterprise-Record
CHICO — There’s something about the way Santa and Mrs. Claus look out from the second story of the West Wind Drive house that makes viewers know they’re special.Dressed in rich red and white, they have a sweet expression on their faces, and you could almost think they were sharing a private joke.
That’s exactly how Maxine Whelchel wanted it. Not only did she take needle to cloth to make them, but had the house designed with a big window so that the Christmas couple could easily be seen from the street. The window reaches from the floor to nearly the ceiling.
That also gives an advantage to Suzanne, the family’s golden retriever.
“She just loves looking out the window especially if there are neighbors and their kids walking by. She loves kids.”
If there’s a theme at the house at 1206 West Wind, it’s about family.
“I do this for the community and especially for the kids.” One of Whelchel’s underlying themes is “Don’t take your family for granted.”
Decorating the house with lights, flower... Jul 5, 2019

Bright, white flowers for hot nights | Sow There! - Chico Enterprise-Record
With an investment of as little as $20, I plunk a few six-packs of white Vinca Rosea into the soil. Vinca Rosea is one of my go-to plants for Chico, and should be purchased as soon as you spot them. They’ll bloom all summer and are fairly forgiving about the torturous summer heat.
More from FTD
As for that FTD website, the narrative includes the type of flowery writing one would expect. They also include what the blooms represent. Again, this information is probably most important to superstitious brides who want to ensure (or avoid) flowers that boast of purity, hope, wisdom, et al.
I took a peek, so I’d be in the know about some of the flowers nearby. The aforementioned jasmine, for example, is good luck. Sweet William includes gallantry and finesse. My beloved gardenia – beauty and love, as well as remembrance of someone who has passed away.
