There are several species of white daisy, the smallest just two or three inches in height, and larger species growing up to four feet high.

The humble daisy has a bad reputation as it does have a tendancy to grow where it isn't wanted such as in the middle of a lawn, however, this diminutive plant is actually very beautiful and of course brings back childhood memories of linking them together to make daisy chain necklaces!

Daisy flowers consist of a yellow button of tiny florets surrounded by rays of narrow white florets that closely resemble petals giving that famous daisy shape that everyone can easily recognise. It is thought that the name daisy comes from the words 'day's eye' as the petals close up during the night and open up again in the daylight.
