They are finely dissected into many thin strands. They clasp the stem and are up to 7.5 cm in length. Daisy leaves are simple in nature, with several lobes along the margin. The flower head has a yellow centre disk, with white petals (ray florets). The flower is almost identical in appearance to a daisy, but is only half as large, reaching a maximum of 2.5 cm in diametre.
