      • That is precisely what they are. We know them as English daisy, Bellis perennis, but they are daisies nonetheless, and might be known to most simply as ‘common daisy’. These are of one of the fancier varieties. Most are not so fluffy. They are more often pink or white. The straight unimproved specie is a common lawn weed, and is considered to be one of the two most likely identities of the ‘flowers’ in the song about San Francisco which says, “If you’re going to San Francisco be sure to put some flowers in your hair.” They grow wild in the many lawns of Golden Gate Park there, and hippies really like them. ‘Daisies’ is such a generic term that applies to several related but distinct specie.

  1. I agree with you! But it seems they are only labeled at Botanic Gardens. (I leave my labels in, though, or else I won’t remember what it is!) Otherwise I use an app on my phone to identify them. The one I am currently using is called Plant Snap.
