BELLIS perennis 'Pomponette Pink'( POMPONETTE SERIES)
Plant Common Name
English Daisy, Pink English Daisy
This English daisy hybrid produces loads of small, densely-double (extra petals) daisies of cool, lavender-pink. The cheerful, button-like flowers appear on short, upright, leafless stems and may bloom from late winter to summer, and sporadically into mid-fall.
Preferring cool temperatures, this diminutive perennial struggles in extreme heat, so is best planted in part shade where summers are hot. Otherwise, it can be planted in full sun and should be provided with fertile, moist soil. It makes a fine edging plants for cottage gardens and perennial borders, and is lovely in containers or planted among spring-blooming bulbs.
English daisy is native to grasslands and woodland edges of Europe as far east as Turkey. Long popular as a garden plant in England, it has been bred to create a range of colorful hybrids. These plants produce small, basal clumps of semi-evergreen foliage that may spread by rhizomes over time in cool summer climates. However, the more contemporary bedding varieties are short-lived in some areas, growing for just a few seasons before they die out entirely.
