Leucanthemum vulgare Seeds

The Ox-Eye Daisy is one of our most beautiful and popular wildflowers. This lovely perennial plant produces rosettes of dark green leaves with tall stems topped by large white daisy-like flowers. As you can see from the photos, blooms are wide open with large yellow centres which are easy for Bees and Butterflies to land on. In fact they are great for lots of pollinating insects.

Lovely for cottage gardens and for wilder parts of manicured gardens such as an orchard, Ox-eye Daisies flower from May until August or September. They love sun and dappled shade. They are also suited to naturalistic planting schemes and wild flower meadows because they grow beautifully with grasses, knautia, geranium and other wildflowers.

Each individual flower is upward facing which makes is jolly useful in the garden or as a cut flower. Grow in full sun with some dappled shade and well drained soil for best results.

Flower Production Blooms are produced from May until August/September. Once flowering is over cut back or mow over the plants if naturalised in grass.
Picking Cut flowers regularly and dead-head to make sure that your plants continue to produce new blooms. When cutting place the cut flowers into a tall bucket of clean water. Allow to rest overnight before arranging. Lasts up to 7 days as a cut flower. (Don't use too many in one vase as their scent can be overpowering!)
