Daisy

Bellis perennis

Also called the ‘Lawndaisy’, this is a familiar small daisy. The solitary flower has a yellow central disc surrounded by white petals which are tinged pink on the undersides. The spoon-shaped leaves are hairy and are often crowded into a tight rosette. Plant height 5 to 10cm. Flower size 1.5 to 2.5cm wide

It flowers all year round, and is found almost anywhere, in lawns, embankments, pastures, meadows and roadsides. A common and widespread species throughout.
