Daisy Bellis perennis

The Daisy is one of the most common and recognisable lawn and turf weeds in gardens in the UK. It can grow in almost any soil conditions and spreads by short runners called stolons. It is a perennial weed which means it lasts for several years. It has very fleshy round leaves which can grow very close to the ground meaning that it can survive in close mown lawns.

The flowers are very distinctive appearing from spring to early autumn with a bright yellow centre surrounded by white petals
