There are currently more then 23,000 recognized species of Asteraceae or Compositae (commonly referred to as the aster, daisy, or sunflower family. The name Asteraceae comes from Aster, the most common genus in the family, and is derived from the Greek word for 'star'. The vernacular name "daisy", widely applied to members of this family, is derived from its Old English name meaning "day's eye". This is because the petals open at dawn and close at dusk. Asters are found everywhere in the world except Antarctica or the extreme Arctic.
