Common Daisy, English Daisy, Lawn Daisy
Bellis perennis 'Pomponette' is a perennial grown as a biennial, with a rosette of spoon-shaped, dark green leaves, and masses of cute pompon-like, fully double flowers in shades of red, pink or white. Blooming in spring and summer, they prefer cool weather, and often decline when hot weather arrives.
English Daisies have long been popular for spring bedding, particularly in mild winter regions. This strain features especially large blooms, the petals curled or quilled, giving a fluffy pompom appearance, in shades of red, pink or white. Removing faded flowers regularly will keep plants blooming well into the summer.
