This is a favourite Daisy of mine, and I have several plants around the garden, and haven't been able to put up any of the Landscape Photos, because the name didn't exist in the Database. I tried to enter it a couple of times, but there was so little info on it, that it kept getting rejected. They still only call it 'Snehurka', instead of Schneehurken.

It took several hours of work yesterday and today, to find the Dutch and German meanings, and the websites to verify, and to hone down the 64 photos I've taken over the last five years, to come up with the current display.

I have to give thanks to @eclayne for finally giving a place where it could be entered, even though my proposal of 'Schneehurken' was turned down. I didn't know there was a similar name of 'Snehurka' for it.

But thanks, Frenchy - it really is a pretty one!

Snehurka is the Czech name for Snow White. Sněhurka a sedm trpaslíků means Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Thank you @zuzu - for further clarification on the European names for this wonderful Daisy.

I love the Snow White version! That's quite exciting!

Looking back on some of my many photos of this great Daisy, I found this one, of some kind of Bee, crawling under the skirt of Snow White, with the Rose, 'Easy Does It', looking on with curiosity.
