Oxeye Daisy (Chrysanthemum leucanthemum Margaretka) 800 seeds (#1035)
About the product
Grown for its white daisies that appear relatively early in the season, this rhizomatous perennial is a common wildflower of European and West Asian grasslands. It is widely naturalized in the United States.
Spreading mats of dark green, lobed or toothed, spoon-shaped leaves give rise in late spring to erect stems topped with yellow-eyed white daisies. Flowering continues for 2 or 3 weeks. Plants often self-sow if not deadheaded. Double-flowered cultivars such as 'Angel' are typically sterile, producing no seed. Several sterile single-flowered cultivars are also available.
Ox-eye daisy grows and flowers best in full sun and moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Their flowers are a cheerful presence in any garden or flower arrangement. This perennial is listed as a noxious weed in several states.
