Flowers Of April
The Calendars Flowers are
daisies and sweet peas which symbolize curiosity, playfulness and tenaciousness. 
English Daisy  -  The flowers have a mildly bitter taste and are most commonly used for their looks than their flavor. The petals are used as a garnish and in salads.
NOTE: Flowering ornamental sweet peas are poisonous.
