Plant Common Name

English Daisy, Tasso Pink English Daisy

General Description

This member of the hybrid ‘Tasso’ series features quilled, fully double flowers of vivid, clear pink. The cheerful, button-like blooms are held atop short, upright, leafless stems which rise from low rosettes of semi-evergreen, spoon-shaped foliage. In cool, temperate climates, they may bloom from late winter into summer, and sporadically into mid-fall.

Preferring moderate temperatures, English daisy 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. This diminutive perennial makes a fine edging plant for cottage gardens and mixed borders, and is lovely when used in containers or planted among spring-blooming bulbs.

English daisy is native to grasslands and woodland edges of Europe, extending 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 may tend to be short-lived, and are often treated as biennials.
