This European wildflower was well-established as a garden plant in Britain by the time of John Parkinson, who described and illustrated several forms in Paradisi in Sole, published in 1629. The variety of common names also attests to its early origins: Bone Flower, Herb Margaret, Measure of Love, and March Daisy. Brought to America by the early colonists, English Daisies were listed by Jefferson in 1771 for planting in the “Open Ground on the West” with ornamental shrubs and other hardy perennials, including Everlasting Pea, Pasque Flower, Flower de Luce and Gilliflower.
