This daisy grows wild everywhere in my area...I dug this one up last year and it's trippled in size this year. I'd really like to know what it's called.

The reed also grow wild everywhere..I've transplanted several to my seasonal creek beds. Any idea what this is called?

The Daisy sure looks like some kind of Aster, although it is hard to tell from that pic. As for the Rush, it looks like a common Juncus articulatus. Are the stems jointed? Then again, I may be way off. Hard to tell without more specifics, like root structure(rhizomous or bulbous) and leaf detail.

Your daisy might be a Leucanthemum.

The Rush looks like what we call Bull Grass.

WOW!!! You all amaze me..I don't even know enough to begin to search. Thank you so much.

Oxeye Daisy - Leucanthemum they are...after finding that looked the same, I checked Wa state info and yep..you all were right.

Juncus effusus was right onthe money. I had no idea this was called Rush..I always thought it was just reeds..because they are hollow...thank you again!
