English Daisy was well established as a garden flower in America by 1700, and was known by a number of common names, including Bone Flower, Herb Margaret, and Measure of Love. In 1771, Jefferson listed English Daisy for planting in the "Open Ground on the West" with other hardy perennials and ornamental shrubs.
Growing wild in English lawns, English Daisies are short-lived in warmer climates where they are usually grown as annuals. Growing to about six inches high, they show small double daisies in shades of red, pink, and white.
