Bellis perennis is a common European species of Daisy, often considered the archetypal species of that name. Many related plants also share the name "Daisy", so to distinguish this species from other daisies it is sometimes qualified as Common Daisy, Lawn Daisy or occasionally English daisy. It is native to western, central and northern Europe. The species is widely naturalized in North America, where it is considered an invasive weed.
It is a herbaceous plant with short creeping rhizomes and small rounded or spoon-shaped evergreen leaves 2.5 cm long, grows close to ground. The flowerheads are 2.3 cm in diameter, with white ray florets (often tipped red) and yellow disc florets; they are produced on leafless stems 2.10 cm (rarely 15 cm) tall. The lawn daisy is a dicot.
