Marguerite, a popular name for several flowers that resemble daisies. The common marguerite, or Paris daisy, is native to the Canary Islands. It is a tender, branching herb two to three feet (60 to 90 cm) high, with coarsely divided leaves and pale-yellow or white flowerheads about two inches (5 cm) across. The marguerite is grown chiefly in greenhouses. The name blue marguerite is often used for the bushy South African blue daisy.
The common marguerite is Chrysanthemum frutescens; blue marguerite, Felicia amelloides. Both belong to the composite family, Compositae.
