Bellis perennis English Daisy, Single White is a perennial flowering plant native to Europe and Western Asia. It is a popular ornamental plant in gardens and lawns worldwide. The plant typically grows up to 6 inches (15 cm) tall and has a spreading habit, forming a low, compact rosette of dark green, spoon-shaped leaves.
English Daisies white have long been popular for spring bedding, particularly in mild winter regions. Plants are two-yearly. Usually, they last through one season, but self-seeding promotes the future generations. This strain flowers take well growth in both fall and spring in the first year, with cute yellow-center semi-double daisies with white petals. They are used as naturalized setting to cover field with beauty due to their short growth habit.
The flowers of English Daisy are produced on long, slender stems that rise above the foliage. The flowers are typically white with a yellow center, though they can also be pink or red. They are small, only about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter, with numerous petals arranged in a single, flat layer. The flowers bloom from early spring to late summer and are an important nectar source for bees and other pollinators.
English Daisy prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. It is a hardy plant and can withstand cold temperatures and frost. The plant is often used as a ground cover or in border plantings, and it can be propagated by seed or division.
In addition to its ornamental value, English Daisy has a long history of medicinal use. The plant has been used to treat a variety of ailments, including coughs, colds, and wounds. It is also a popular ingredient in herbal teas and has a mild, slightly bitter flavor.
