Artist's Description

First introduced to eastern North America in the early 1600’s, the Ox-Eye Daisy is now one of the most common wildflowers across the continent. Daisies have long been part of European lore, twisted into daisy chains and circlets at picnics and schools commencements, or plucked of their white petals (he loves me, he loves me not). It is a slender, erect perennial 20-90cm tall from spreading rootstock. The leaves are basil and alternate 4-15cms long, coarsely toothed or lobed, smaller and stalkless upward.

Flowerheads are white, 2.5-5cm across with 15-35 strap-like florets around a bright yellow 1-2cm button of tubular florets, with dry, brown-edged bracts at the base. Flowerheads are single. Blooms May-September in open, disturbed sites.
