An English Daisy Update

Not long ago I posted pictures of my English Daisy (Bellis Perennis) plant growing wild in my yard.  Since then it has grown and put on many more blooms.  I think it's just a lovely little plant.  Wish I had more of them now.  They are a cool-season annual that are easy to grow from seed down here.  Plant them in the fall for best results, though it may be worth a try in the early spring.  They grow in the same conditions that calendulas grow in, so refer to my post of yesterday for more infomation.  I think these would be perfect in a cottage garden at the front of a bed with taller plants behind them.  They only get about 6" high.
