Looking like a tiny daisy, in England this plant is known as lawn daisy because it grows so short and so dense that it's a weed in lawns, albeit a beautiful weed.
Technically a perennial, English daisy is usually best treated as a biennial (it takes two years to bloom and then dies in the fall) in the South and an annual in the North. Plants survive down to about 10 degrees F so they can be planted in the fall in the South for early-spring bloom. In cool climates, such as England and the Pacific Northwest, they'll bloom from spring planting until summer heat arrives.
Dianthus and English daisy both appreciate well-drained soil. The pink of dianthus blooms coordinate beautifully with rose, white, and red English daisies. Both look great in a cottage garden.Pansy
Plant pansies and English daisies in the fall for a quick burst of color that will return in spring in the South.Snapdragon
Snapdragon is another cool-season annual that can survive mild winters. Its upright spikes create a lovely contrast to low-growing English daisies.
