Bellis (English Daisy)
Add a frilly, old fashioned touch of color in spring, and sometimes fall, by planting Bellis in the garden. Caring for these flowers is simple, and growing Bellis is a reliable way to have petite to mid-sized flowers filling in difficult areas of the flowerbed, however they are lovely in a container as well. The blooms have a yellow disk in the center and are surrounded with delicate petals of white, pink or even red. Flower stems usually reach 3 to 6 inches in height. Petals of the flower fold up at night and open again with the sun. Bellis blooms may slow during the hottest summer days and return in cooler temperatures of late summer or fall.
