Description

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.  Thomas Jefferson listed the English Daisy for planting with other hardy perennials at Monticello in 1771.  This cool-season, short-lived perennial bears small double daisies in shades of red, pink, and white and prefers cool, moist soil. Jefferson-documented: This plant was documented by Thomas Jefferson in his Garden Book, Notes on the State of Virginia, or other writings.

Sow English Daisy (Bellis perennis) seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before last frost date at 65˚F.  Transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors after last frost.  Approximately 260-300 seeds per packet.
