Hi all. I’ve been asked what flowers are the small pink ones in the attached photo. I was thinking some sort of Dahlia, maybe pink suffusion, but would appreciate an expert eye if anyone can help. Thanks.

    Hi clarkeymusic they look like daisies to me, they are bellis perennis?

    Yes, a cultivated form of common-or-garden daisies. They're a lovely little plant making a great show there.

    I agree ... Bellis perennis

  • Thanks all, spot on! Thanks so much - I believe the picture was taken today in Regents Park, London. They look lovely don’t they.

    They do clarkeymusic and more glamorous than the ones in my lawn  :D   Don't know about the posh ones but trying to dig the lawn daisies out of the flower beds always make me think of that old song "My Old Man's a Dustman"
