Plant details

Bellis daisies, as they are commonly called, are a familiar ingredient of spring bedding schemes, with a multitude of varied uses. They are attractive as edging for beds of other spring-flowering biennials, but also make excellent windowbox and container plants they may be used to fill empty areas at the front of borders, and are sufficiently restrained to blend well into rock gardens. There are varieties with enormous monstrous flowers, but Bellis perennis  Bellis perennis  'Double Pink' remains a popular choice with its neat, tightly packed miniature heads in delicate shades of pink.
