Tripleurospermum maritimum, Sea Mayweed

Above: Sea Mayweed growing in shingle in North Wales

Another white and yellow daisy of which we have so many in the UK and Ireland, but this one is only found on the coast where it grows in sand and shingle. It is also found on the coasts of many northern European countries.

The plants form large clumps and the flowers can appear as early as April in warm springs. They continue to bloom until the end of October.

The plant on this page was photographed in North Wales at Cemaes Bay Nature Reserve in Anglesey in August.
