I know of no other genus whose plants flower out-of-doors every day of the year.
I know of no other genus with one or more species coming into bloom or growth, peaking or going dormant at every season.
- Nancy Goodwin
I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers And not pick one.
- Edna St. Vincent Millay
