Summer in The Garden - Leucanthemum vulgare or Ox-Eye Daisy

Pin It

Ox-eye daisies, botanically known as Leucanthemum vulgare, grow with wild abandon in my garden, punctuating the dry grasses with deep green foliage and bright white, yellow-eyed flowers.

I do have to pull some of them or they would take over everywhere. Not a bad-looking weed, is it?

If you'd like to see more, take a look at these photos.

Wow, look at the symmetry of the circular patterns of the yellow center of the flower. Nature is quite an artist. Happy blogging!
