The sweet pea signifies pleasure or farewell or a common adage that became associated with the flower which was “thank you for a lovely time.” The second flower for April is the daisy. The daisy means innocence, purity, beauty and cheerfulness. Richard Jameson discovered this flower in South Africa however it dates back to ancient times.
