Bellis Perennis is normally associated with daisies but these beauties below are much more eye catching than the regular daisy. Their pastel and warm colours brighten up a patch of garden like no other. It's hard to imagine so much cheer can be emitted from one bloom type.

Bellis Perennis

Bellis perennis or daisy, formerly called consolida, on account of its vulnerary properties ; the roots and leaves were used in wound drinks, and were considered efficacious in removing extravasated blood from bruises, etc. It is said to be refused by cattle on account of its peculiar taste ~ Forgotten Remedies
