Daisy-like Flowers

Blood Root

Blood Root (Sanguinaria canadensis), a member of the Papaveraceae (poppy) family, is more tender and beautiful than its general name suggests. The leaf unfolds when flowering. Each pedicel produces single white flower 2-inches wide, 8 to 10 petals, 1.5-inches in diameter, with numerous yellow stamens in the center.


Osteospermum is a relatively new addition to the world of gardening as it became only available in the early 1990s. With its daisy-like flowers in a wide variety of colors, the osteospermum is a favorite among florists and gardeners. Each flower features a central disk of tiny tubular flowers surrounded by fertile ray blooms that resemble petals in a wide range of colors, including yellow, pink, and white.
