Ox-Eyed Daisy - Chrysanthemum leucanthemum

This perennial may grow erect to 1 metre in height. Its lower leaves are spoon-shaped, coarsely dissected and stalked while the upper leaves are narrower and stalkless or clasp the stem tightly. Daisy-like flowers are borne at the ends of the stems and a central yellow disk flower is 10 to 20 mm wide. The white ray flowers are often 1 to 2 cm in length.

This wild flower is often confused with the domestic ornamental Shasta daisy which is a more robust plant with larger flowers.
