Flower linked to the images of our childhood, once the Margheritina also called Pratolina, was the flower that adorned many of our fields. Even today, although it is more difficult, daisy can be seen spotting the meadows of our cities with white. The grasses of the city parks seem to look forward to the birth of this spring flower which is one of the first to bloom but has the ability to manage to survive, almost all year long, especially if it is found in the fields, its natural habitat. The daisy in fact prefers a well hydrated and moist soil enough to be able to find a safe shelter for its roots. This cute little flower does not find an ideal environment when the climate is too dry or muggy, that's why we see it more in certain places than others.
What is Margheritina
Daisy is not a particularly fragrant flower and is a herbaceous plant that practically grows everywhere. We can find it on the banks of the roads, on the edges of the streams and also in the residential areas of the countryside. The botanical name of this simple field flower is Bellis perennis and it is a flower with a stem of just 20 centimeters with petiolate leaves wrapped in a very light hair and the corolla formed by small yellowish flower heads and a tide of white petals very close together . The flower has the characteristic of closing at night when the temperatures drop and when it rains and reopens only when the sun's rays reach a moderate heat and the daisy, it turns right following the direction of the solar heat. The petals are almost always white, reaching pinkish or yellowish hues.
