Some similarities to : Daisy. At first glance it can easily be mistaken for daisy; the flowers are almost identical, except perhaps slightly larger. But the habitat is very different preferring walls rather than mown grass. The leaves too are narrow and very unlike the spoon-shaped leaves of daisies.

Just like Daisies, most of the flowers are white, but there are a few that can be purplish-pinkish instead, and often being a deeper shade on the underside of the rays.
