Looks like argyranthemum to me too. They used to be called Marguerite.

Wasn't argyranthemum all under chryanthemum until all this renaming went on?......

Yours look lovely Bloomer x

Thank you Pam and Arbuthnot..I would never have guessed,as I assumed Argyranthemum were much bigger flowers..just shows how much I know ! :o)

It's Creeping Daisy (Leucanthemum paludosum), a hardy annual. Here in the desert, we grow it as a winter blooming "wildflower". I don't know how well it reseeds itself in other climates.

Don't remember any seedlings Tug, gets cut down by the frosts.....
funny summer here, its mid august and last night the temerature dropped to 7c.....lower further north, not normal at all ?

Well, when I said "hardy", I meant to -7ยบ C. It's not in the same league as winter-blooming pansies! :)

No, them and viola's are good, I find viola's stand the frost better and have less diseases than their big cousins

True, Pamg. Bloomer, its juxtaposition to a Clarkia makes me wonder if it wasn't part of a "Low Growing Flower Mix" seed packet.
