Bellis perennis* (English lawn daisy)

Considered a weed in traditional lawns but has recently become popular in non-traditional “flowering lawns” or low-input “ecolawns”; also used as a bedding plant. Beautiful, spreading, white to pink blooms remain until summer heat. Very short, only 3-6 in. tall. Prefers moist, well-drained, low-fertility soils in full sun or partial shade. Overseed an existing lawn or apply when seeding a new lawn. A biennial that will not produce flowers until the second season.
