English daisy (Bellis perennis)

Perennial treated as annual

Plump, perky English daises make great edging plants. Or slip a few into your lawn for unexpected bursts of color.

Dark green leaves are 1 to 2 inches long and form rosettes to 8 inches wide. Pink, rose, red, or white flowers are borne on 3- to 6-inch stems.

Deadhead to prolong bloom. English daisy needs regular water and prefers a bit of shade in hot climates.
