Daisies

Posted on Jan. 24, 2017 by Canada Post in Latest Stamps

Every year, Canadians count on Canada Post to herald the arrival of spring with a fresh flower issue. Cultivated or wild, these annual blooms pull us out of the winter doldrums and turn our thoughts to the warmer, sunnier days ahead. This year, two colourful daisies are available to brighten your day – and your mail.

While the lakeside daisy (Tetraneuris herbacea) is named after an Ohio village, this brilliant yellow wildflower is now found almost exclusively on Ontario’s Bruce Peninsula and southern Manitoulin Island. Designated as threatened on the federal and provincial lists of species at risk, this perennial thrives in areas of exposed bedrock with scant soil – areas that are also prone to development. Sadly, its beauty is fleeting, as its golden flowers last only about a week.

Fields of showy fleabane (Erigeron speciosus) welcome the arrival of spring in wet meadows and open forests in British Columbia and Alberta’s high country. This attractive wildflower, which is usually found in lavender but also exists in pink and white, is known by many other names, including pretty daisy and aspen or Oregon fleabane. Although it has played a role in traditional medicine, the best tonic this bloom provides may just be the hope that spring is finally close at hand.
