This charming European native is an extremely popular plant and a familiar sight in the spring garden. Pomponette White boasts masses of tightly quilled, 4cm button flowers on neat, compact plants. They bloom repeatedly from late winter to late spring with lovely white fully double blooms.

  

It is widely cultivated and prized for it's long lasting early spring blooms. Perfect for use in small beds, edging, borders and rock gardens where it can be interplanting with spring bulbs. It makes an excellent companion for pansies and can also be used window boxes, alpine troughs or other containers. 

 

Easy to grow from seed, they grows only 15 to 20cm (6 to 8in) high forming a low cushion of evergreen leaves which bloom in either in sun or part shade. They are highly attractive to bees and butterflies and come at a time when their nectar is very much appreciated!

 

 

 

Sowing:                       Midsummer to early autumn or in early spring

Where winters are mild, direct seed from mid summer for winter and spring bloom. Elsewhere, for a good show of late spring colour, start seeds indoors in midwinter at  13-18°C (55-65°F) - 8 to 10 weeks before transplanting outdoors.

(Bellis perennis is a perennial but treated in hot areas of the world as a hardy biennial; in severe-winter areas, as a tender annual or biennial.)

 

Sowing Indoors

Sow in pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Keep at a temperature of between 15-20°C (59-68°F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 10-21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant the seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays to grow on. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out (after October for winter flowering). Plant 15cm (6in) apart.

 

Sowing Direct:

Plant seeds outdoors in the open ground or in a cold frame from mid summer to early autumn in soil enriched with compost. Sow seeds on the surface of the soil and keep moist until seedlings are established. Protect seedlings with a light mulch of straw until frost danger is past.

The seedlings should be thinned out to 5cm (2in) apart. Transplant in the autumn to the beds where they are to flower. They will flower in spring the following year.

 

Cultivation:

Easy to grow. For best results provide a moist, well-drained soil in full sun or part shade. If the weather is cool, bloom will continue into summer. They have average water needs; water regularly, but do not overwater. They prefers a cool summer and do not do well in humidity.

Bag seedheads to capture ripening seed or allow seed to fall to ensure future plants

 

Plant Uses:  

Rockeries, Bedding, edging paths, Containers, patios, window boxes.

 

Nomenclature:

Bellis is a genus of 15 species of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. The common English daisy, B. perennis, is native to western, central and northern Europe. Often growing in lawns; they will survive being trodden underfoot and all the indignities of the hoe and the lawnmower. Double ones are horticultural varieties. Since related plants also share the name "daisy," the name of this species is sometimes qualified as common daisy, English daisy, true daisy, or lawn daisy.

It is thought that the name "daisy" is a corruption of "day's eye," because the whole head of the common daisy opens at sunrise & closes at sunset. Chaucer called it "eye of the day."

 

The genus Bellis may come from the Latin bellis meaning beautiful (pretty or charming), perennis means 'perennial' so Bellis perennis can be translated as perennial beauty.

Then again it Bellis may come from Bellum, Latin for war because it grew in fields of battle & can stop bleeding & reduce bruising & shock. One of the common daisies old names is ‘bruisewort’. It has astringent properties and has been used in folk medicine as well (Howard 1987). The green leaves are edible but should be consumed moderately.

 

The daisy is a multi-faceted symbol; it is a symbol of innocence because of its association with children, and of survival. The daisy is also a classic bronzed medal decoration used in Ancient Rome to enhance the gladiator's armour.

 


There are other colour ways of this daisy in both single colours and mixed listed in the Ebay shop.
