The Oxeye Daisy Plant
The Leucanthemum vulgare or the Oxeye Daisy is a hardy perennial herb ranging from one to three feet high that might remind you of Shasta Daisies, with a central yellow eye surrounded by 20 to 30 white petals. It is a beautiful wildflower and will flourish in a wildflower meadow. However, this plant can quickly invade other areas of the landscape. These colonies can displace native plants and destroy existing communities.
The Leucanthemum vulgare, also known as the May Queen or the Oxeye Daisy, is an herbaceous, perennial daisy member of the Asteraceae family and is found throughout Europe, the United States, and Canada. The Oxeye Daisy typically grows in flat, grassy environments such as prairies, green pastures, and grazing cattle fields.
This daisy is best grown in dry to medium-moisture soils exposed to full, direct sunlight throughout the day. In more tropical and higher-temperature environments, the Oxeye Daisy will grow in lightly shaded areas. Peak blooming months for the Oxeye Daisy range from late-Spring in May to late-Summer in August. Flowers produced during the blooming season consist of bright white petals surrounding a deep yellow circular center.
The plant is best grown in the United States Department of Agricultural Growing Zones 3 – 8 and will grow to a maximum height of up to 36 inches under optimal conditions. Furthermore, the Oxeye Daisy will reach a spread of 12 inches to 24 inches wide in full bloom. Leaves are dark green with typical lengths between 3 and 5 inches long.
Since the flowers of the Oxeye Daisy are known for their durability and longevity throughout the blooming seasons, this plant is most commonly added to wildflower gardens. It uses as both a centerpiece and a border plant.
