Common Lawn Daisy
Better known as the common Daisy, this perennial evergreen is widely naturalised around the world.
Its flowers are small, around 3cm in diameter, with many white petals and a yellow center eye. Leaves are spoon-shaped, up to 5cm tall, found in lawns and meadows the world over. Blooms tend to occur from early summer onwards with a long flowering season, though blooms can also occur during mild winters.
Once used as a medicinal herb in Ancient Rome, the leaves and flowers of the daisy can be eaten raw or brewed into teas. Leaves become astringent with age.
Hardy down to -15°C once established.
