This is an introduced perennial, native to Europe and Asia. Considered a noxious weed in several states.
I have this plant in my garden and find this classic daisy a good bloomer that provides almost endless cut flowers for a small arrangement.
It blooms earlier than all the other garden daisies.
The almost lacy leaves leave air and visibility for the other perennials nearby. (Not a space hog.)
