Flower Identification Help

Anyone know what the name of the attached flower is? Located it in a public planter under a large tree in Los Angeles, Summer season. Would love to find out so we can use at our place. Thanks for the help!

Possibly a osteopermun(sp).If so they spread quite well.That's what the leaves and flower look like to me.

Didn't we used to call these "freeway daisies?" Seems like they were used along freeways for a while. I think they come in white too. Easy plant, spreads out and has to be kept under control.

Yes socks,that's the name I always called them.. We have the white also.

Here's ours about 2 years ago,we've since cut them back.
