Went to Ascot House & Gardens ne Leighton Buzzard today and saw many different coloured versions of this. Quite dainty little flowers no more than an inch is size.

Anyone know what it is?

    Easy to raise from seed if you fancy having a go. I grew these and they have been flowering for weeks.

    Thank you @Athelas and @AnniD
    Isn't it a bit too late to sow from seed for flowering this year?

    I've had the red ones flower through the winter into early summer. I'm fact they were still going strong when I had to move them to put something else in the container 
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    I think they're biennials - sow now to flower next spring.

    Yes, l sowed them around August time (can't remember exactly but l could look in my diary). Planted them out in October, and as soon as the days started to lengthen off they went. I'd say they've been really doing well since the middle of April.

    I have an overwintered bellis bellisima, which was planted as a garden-ready plug in March last year, which is still going strong.
