Oxeye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)
Oxeye Daisy: Leucanthemum vulgare, the oxeye daisy or marguerite daisy, is a customer favorite at TN Nursery. They are an easy-care, classic beauty that can add character to any garden setting.
A native to Europe, the oxeye daisy arrived in the United States centuries ago. Today, they are as expected in the American landscape as many native species.
This hardy perennial flower thrives in most USDA growing zones in the contiguous United States. It prefers a mixture of sun and shade but will also tolerate full sunshine if you don't mind watering it.
Oxeye Daisy Resists Common Garden Issues
Leucanthemum vulgare is an easy-going plant resisting many common garden challenges.
- ● Deer resistant: Deer present a challenge to many gardeners. However, they seem to find the floral aroma of the oxeye daisy a little too fragrant and will prefer to forage elsewhere.
- ● Rabbit resistant: Rabbits are the bane of many gardens. Like deer, bunnies have sensitive noses and seem deterred by the fragrance the oxeye daisy emits.
- ● Drought resistant: Leucanthemum vulgare likes moist soil but can also tolerate short periods of dry or hot weather. You can keep your watering efforts to about an inch a week during these times.
Oxeye Daisy Is a Tall Classic Flower
Plant oxeye daisies in clumps to create height in your border, flower beds, in mass plantings near a home's foundation, or near a water garden. Oxeye daisy is almost carefree and happy to call nearly any partially sunny spot home. It blooms in the middle of summer.
The stems and flowers can grow as high as three feet, and clumps can measure about two to three feet. The leaves are sturdy and erect, reaching high toward the sun. Leaves are green, narrow, and thin. They grow thicker near the bottom of the plant.
Profuse disc-shaped rays of petals comprise the head of the flower. The signature angelic white and sunny yellow center make it a popular option for floral arranging.
The scent is floral with a spicy note, pleasing and not overpowering.

The plant looks afresh and packaging was nice.
They delete bad reviews. Don’t buy from them. Everything is bad . Rotten roots, poor plants and they don’t give money back
