Yup, English daisy. Those little heart-shaped leaves give it away.

I don't think this is it. It is very spindly with no broad leaves. Here's what it looks like pulled out:

You're right, what you pulled out is not English daisy.

But your photo features English daisy flowers and leaves, so I assumed that's the plant you wanted to know about.

The plant you pulled out resembles a weedy chickweed, but I can't tell for certain. Can you take a closeup or two of the flowers and leaves?

Jacqueg, those leaves do not belong to the daisy. That is a low growing ground cover called Dichondra.

If that's the case, then I don't know what that plant is, other than it is a member of the Asteraceae, a vast family, unfortunately. Which the OP probably knows already, since a daisy is pretty much a daisy.

There is a good closeup of the purple and yellow flowers in the first post. No leaves at all just stems and buds.

For the life of me, all the flowers I see are little white (maybe pinkish) and yellow daisies.

I believe that may be creeping white prairie aster (Symphyotrichum falcatum), it is spindly like that and the fresh newly opened flower petals can have a faint violet tinge to them that fades to white as the flower ages.
