An old favourite with sweet pink double flowers which fade to white as they get older. Easy to grow and will self-seed if allowed. Very drought tolerant but is equally happy in normal or damp soil.
Flowers from early spring to early summer and often in autumn too.
Common name(s): Old Double Daisy
Bellis - The name daisy was originally "Day's Eye" because the flower was the first to open in the morning. They were much used in Victorian cottage gardens, grown at the side of paths where their roots could enjoy the cool moist soil under the stones.
