Bellis perennis

Perennial  daisy                                                                                           Μαργαρίτα

Asteracea - daisy family                                                                                         Dicot.


There is an abundance of daisy-like flowers, with yellow centre surrounded by simple white ray florets, blooming on Skopelos in spring, but most of them are chamomile; but growing in shady moist corners is the perfectly ordinary, simple daisy Bellis perennis.

Mostly associated with more temperate climes, Bellis perennis occurs throughout Greece; it is easily differentiated from the similar Bellis sylvestris, which only flowers in the autumn.
