What is its name?

This plant appeared in among my wild geraniums. Have moved it as it was being swamped. I love its lime green coloured foliage.  It is between 15 to 20cm tall and has white daisy like flowers in early summer. Would love more.
Anyone any idea? Thanks for the help .

    No expert @purplerallim but it looks like feverfew to me. I wait to be corrected  :)

    Feverfew was my first thought.

    They really brighten up a border. They dont mind being transplanted either. They seed all over the place.

    This one just sat there last summer, never got much bigger,  but was a bit squeezed, so hopefully will like more space.😁

    Yes, Golden Feverfew.  I love it for both its foliage and daisy type flowers.  As mentioned it does seed itself but the seedlings are so easy to spot early on and can either be easily weeded out or moved as B3 has mentioned.  I found it best as a biennial as it tends to get scraggly after that. The non golden variety is nowhere near so attractive IMHO.

    I had to buy one a few years ago as it disappeared from my garden. Plenty of it now,though.

    Hopefully it will spread somewhat in my new bed ( it has plenty of room) as a ground cover it is beautiful. 😁

    It spreads all over my garden. I like it. You can cut it back after flowering if it gets scraggy.

    It was cut back a bit when the geranium were tided last year, but not much as it's been a tidy plant.
