The common daisy (Bellis perennis), also known as the English, European or lawn daisy, is a popular rock garden or edging plant, but it is also considered to be a weed in some areas.
Daisies like a rich, fertile soil and cool, moist weather. They do not tolerate clay or hot and dry conditions.
Daisies are very prolific, and where conditions are favorable, they can escape into gardens and lawns or other natural spaces and be difficult to eradicate.
In scientific research tests, compared to a placebo, taking B. perennis reduced postpartum blood loss.
