The most cherished of our wildflowers, the daisy, will be immediately recognized by most everyone. Here is an interesting piece of information: the daisy flower is a composite, viz., the yellow buttons at the center are a tight bunch of very small yellow flowers and the white "petals" are really rays of the composite flower. The daisy has been introduced from Europe.
I read (Griffin) where, if cattle eat it, it can impart a disagreeable taste to the milk; thus, the daisy is not a plant the dairyman likes to see in his pasture.
