English Daisy (Bellis perennis)

Perennial, broadleaf

RANGE: Northern half of the United States.

APPEARANCE: Leaves of this perennial vary from nearly smooth to hairy, and form an extremely dense cluster. The daisylike flowers growing on 2-inch stalks have bright yellow centers highlighted with white to pinkish outer rays.

GROWTH: English daisy has long since gone from an ornamental to a well-established and fast-growing lawn weed. It grows most rapidly in spring and fall and in all seasons on the West Coast if protected from drought and heat.
