If you think she's asking for carnations, I would go with it. I associate the daisy with her, personally ( have a faint recollection of reading it somewhere, but I couldn't tell you where.)

As for the native bit, and whether that matters- it depends. On the context, on the deity in question, on the person, sometimes. In some cases it's appropriate to stick with traditional offerings, and sometimes people give all sorts of offerings that ancient people would have been unable to give. There's no hard and fast rule. But if she seems to be asking for something specific, I'd say you can go outside of what's traditional or not and just give her want she wants. Smiley

Thanks! This is the first time a Deity has asked for something specific and I was taken by surprise (and a little delight I have to say) and wanted to get everything right.

It’s a funhouse, a madhouse, a palace of magical sin
But beware you leave nothing behind
For if you go back through the way you came in
The Dam Dog will swallow your mind.
