Adaptations of Common Daisy (Bellis perrenis)
Grows from rhizomes (growing stem found underground).
Small rounded spoon shaped leaves, that grow in a rosette formation are evergreen. Leaves are 2-5cm long. Leaves
may be hairy
The flower heads are 2-3cm wide, with white petals often with a red tip. They are produced on a leafless stem, 210cm tall.
Growing environment
It has shallow roots so it is susceptible to drought, often found in moist soils.
Often found in heavy to well-drained soils. Found amongst short grass.
Adaptations to environment;
- It grows low to the ground so it is not affected by mowing
- White petals surrounding the central anthers (producing pollen) to attract insects
- flowers grow taller than surrounding plants to attract insects
