The outer parts of the of the daisy head are known as the ray flowers. Ray flowers are generally attractive but sterile. The large petals of ray flowers are fused together to form what looks like a single petal. The flat center of the daisy head is made up of many tiny flowers known as disc flowers, which radiate symmetrically from the center of the disc. These disc flowers are the part of the daisy head that produce seeds.
