Bellis perennis - English daisy

Asteraceae


English daisy is a perennial that is very common throughout the U.S. in lawns and landscapes. It is not very common in nurseries.

It is a low growing plant, which suits its survival in lawns and protects it from mowing.

Foliage is elliptical and pubescent.

Flower heads occur solitary on short stalks 1 to 2 inches in height.

Flower heads are composite with white-pink ray flowers and yellow disk flowers.

Petal-like ray flowers can range from white to pink. Above flowers are tinged pink on the tips, while the flower below is almost pure white.

Flower stems are circular in cross-section and pubescent.
