A weed with slightly hairy, elongated oval leaves forms a tight rosette in the lawn. White to pink flowers with yellow centers, up to 2 inches across, appear from April to June and again from September to November. The English lawn daisy, although a welcome member of the perennial garden, often escapes cultivation and becomes a weed in the lawn. It thrives in moist, cool soil. When growing in the lawn, English lawn daisy may indicate low soil fertility.
Improve soil fertility by following a program of regular feedings during the growing season.
