Plant details

One of the joys of early spring is this lovely species from the Eastern Mediterranean where, long before the tourists arrive, it graces rocky places, shrubs and open woodland in sheets of colour. The delightful flowers, like large daisies, have a dozen or more petals neatly arranged around a gold centre and come in a complete range of colours including blues, purples, pinks and whites.
