DAISY & THE DAISY FAMILY

The daisy family, Compositae, is the second largest family of flowering plants, but it contains only a few food plants, such as lettuce, endive, and dandelions.  The ancestor of today’s various varieties of Lettuce derive from an ancient strain native to Asia, and has been cultivated for almost 5,000 years.

The name 'Daisy' derives from the Old English 'day's eye.'  The daisy opens in the morning and closes at night, and the flower resembles the sun surrounded by white rays.         

The young leaves and buds may be used in salads and soups.
