Glebionis coronaria, formerly Chrysanthemum coronarium, is one of the most-loved of the common Mediterranean wildflowers.
The Crown Daisy blooms throughout the region on roadsides and in abandoned farmland from March right through until September. The flowers are usually yellow and white (as above) but are sometimes completely yellow.
The specimens shown here were photographed in the Algarve in March.
