Growing along the roadside on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachucetts, USA
Weed Description: A perennial from rhizomes with characteristic ‘daisy-like’ flowers. Oxeye daisy is primaily a weed of turfgrass, lawns, roadsides, and nursery crops. It is found throughout the United States.
Leaves: Plants initially develop as a basal rosette. Lower rosette leaves occur on petioles and are from 1 1/2 to 6 inches long. Rosette leaves have rounded teeth or lobes and are widest at the apex and taper to the base. Leaves that occur along the flowering stem are without petioles (sessile), lanceolate in outline, and have smaller rounded teeth or lobes. Leaves become progressively smaller up the flowering stem. All leaves are alternate and without hairs.
