Bellis perennis

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

The flowers open during the day and close at night. The name is almost certainly a corruption of 'day's eye'.They are a useful nectar source for many solitary bees and flies. Perhaps if the daisy were not so common, we would appreciate it more. Many people might agree that a lawn without at least a few of these simple but lovely plants is the poorer for their absence. Daisies have been feted by poets from Chaucer onwards. It is a plant woven into our culture like almost no other.
