Bellis daisies, as they’re commonly called, are a familiar ingredient of spring bedding schemes, with a multitude of varied uses. Attractive as edging for beds of other spring-flowering biennials, they also make excellent window box and container plants. There are varieties with enormous flowers, but Bellis perennis ‘Double Pink’ remains a popular choice with its neat, tightly packed miniature heads in delicate shades of pink.
