With a name that means ‘midday flowering’ this particular genus is native to South Africa …. very topical considering the location of the 2010 World Cup !

Native to the UK, the wild varieties of daisy (such as Bellis Perennis) are commonly found growing in sunny spots on lawns and other areas of short grass.

According to Wikipedia, the name Daisy may be derived from “day’s eye” because of the characteristic way in which it fully closes at night.
