English Daisy Bellis Perennis Mixed Colours 250 Seeds
Bellis perennis is a common European species of daisy, of the Asteraceae family, often considered the archetypal species of that name.
Many related plants also share the name "daisy", so to distinguish this species from other daisies it is sometimes qualified as common daisy, lawn daisy or English daisy. Historically, it has also been commonly known as bruisewort and occasionally woundwort (although the common name woundwort is now more closely associated with Stachys (woundworts)). Bellis perennis is native to western, central and northern Europe, but widely naturalised in most temperate regions including the Americas and Australasia.
How to Grow and Care for Bellis Species such as Daisy
When growing Bellis outdoors it is best to sow out the seeds on the surface from spring to mid summer.
They prefer to grow in rich soil and prefer lightly shaded or sunny areas of the garden. It is important to cut Daisy flowers back after flowering or they may take over the garden.
