Answer: Daisy-like flowers are members of the compositae family, and there are more than 600 species to choose from! Calendula and Bellis have daisy-like flowers, as well. Probably the best choice for fall seeding is English or Meadow Daisy. The seeds germinate readily and plants will flower the following spring. Arctotis, the African Daisy can be seeded in the fall. Shasta daisy (Chrysanthemum maximum) is easy to grow from seed, but is best started in the spring. Seeds will remain viable if stored in a cool, dark location, in an airtight container.
Two bulbs that produce daisy-like flowers are Ornithogalum nutans (Lily family) and Anemone blanda 'Ingramii' (Ranunculus family). Both can be planted in the fall for spring bloom.
