Daisy

The common daisy (Bellis perennis) is a troublesome weed which is easily identified by the characteristic white flower

Problem Overview

The common daisy (Bellis perennis) is a ubiquitous weed which is easily identified by the characteristic white flower with a yellow centre that is often used to make “daisy chains”. It grows as a rosette and belongs to the asteraceae family. These plants grow as rosettes in the vegetative state and these are often joined together by subterranean stems.

Solutions

Herbicides containing Picloram appear to be the most effective and this includes products such as Triumph Gold, Victory Gold, & Brushkiller. Be aware the fine fescue and NZ Browntop will discolour if these products are applied during the cooler winter months when the plants are not actively growing.

Therefore it is best to apply this product from September through until April. Fine turf species will also be affected if these herbicides are applied when the lawns are suffering form heat & moisture stress.  Therefore, the best control will occur if these species are sprayed prior to flowering and when the grass plants are actively growing.

A reasonable level of control will also be exerted by applying herbicides that contain 2,4-D & dicamba like Banvine and Agpro Lawnclean.
