English Daisy (Bellis Perennis Pink) 250 seeds (#1699)
About the product
This English daisy with wonderful large double pink color flower heads provide long lasting colour for spring bedding dispalys, as an edging plant and in garden containers.
Preferring cool temperatures, this diminutive biennial flower struggles in extreme heat, so is best planted in part shade where summers are hot. Otherwise, it can be planted in full sun and should be provided with fertile, moist soil. It makes a fine edging plants for cottage gardens and perennial borders, and is lovely in containers or planted among spring-blooming bulbs.
English daisy is native to grasslands and woodland edges of Europe as far east as Turkey. These plants produce small, basal clumps of semi-evergreen foliage that may spread by rhizomes over time in cool summer climates.
