Leanna, There is a history behind how the flowers from the Mediterranean ended up here. They were brought on the ship , by Columbus and his crew probably. Most of these wild flowers were used as medicine . For instance , a concoction of the Mallow plant was used to ease toothache,and so on and so forth.

Leanna and Argy, I do find the fact that most of the wild flowers that I have spotted in California,are native to the Mediterranean.

It's amazing how widespread it is in Aus eh! (more than naturalised)

You're welcome! Seaside Daisy is a plant I learnt when I studied horticulture many years ago, though I thought I remembered it called something different. Thank 'you' Emma! I thought it was native to Australia! Silly memory ;)
