This is a large size plant, not like the small ones so I am not sure on the id for the data base.

This isn't Bellis perennis (US common name English Daisy) it looks like an Anthemis.

However, be careful on species identification, there are over 100 different species and many look very similar.

I just took another picture to show size. It can not be english daisy due to the foliage, I can see that now. I have this plant, but it never looked as good as when I photographed it June. It was a dying reject from home depot no tag. I love saving dying plants. I will check the link. Maybe this picture is better for id, then the prettier one?

Ahh now the leaves offer a different perspective, it could be Chamamelum, Chrysanthemum, Anthemis, Leucanthemum or a Tanacetum.

OK are the leaves scented?

Is the plant mat forming, shrubby or soft?

and How tall does it grow?

Poppysue and Mark (among others) are excellent IDers of Asteraceae, perhaps they will pop by too

it's an Argyranthemum but there are too many white ones to choose from to name this one

y'see a plant can be anything when viewed from the wrong angle. until we/I saw the leaves and the actual plant from a low angle and not a birdseye view it could have been any Asteraceae/Composite/daisy.

glad to be of service

Oh what a beautiful link, I will take a close up of the flower to compare, but it is dark now. I took some photos for the data base today, in fact, ones I know what they are, I photographed the tags.

Argyranthemum broussonetti
I think that is what it is, I am having trouble with the manual focus, but this photo shows one of the flowers in focus.

I think you are too close to the flowers when you photograph them. thats why the flower in the background is in focus.

your plant doesnt have enough petals to be Argyranthemum broussonetti which has more petals which are longer and have a yellow base to the petals

A terrible lose, but the plant died. It developed an odd problem in that the stems closer to the base became very mushy over the winter, then they began to break off. I don't know it was a fungal diesase or if it died of old age.
I saw a similar plant but then I did not want to try it until I know why this one died.

they cant take any freezing. to keep them alive they need to be above freezing all winter. They are cheap enough here for me to buy rooted cuttings every year. I can get these for $2 each

I see, I should consider them annuals. We had our warmest winter last year, no frezze, and a couple hostas refused to come back because of this.
