Leucanthemum vulgare / Ox-Eye Daisy / Marguerite / British Wildflower / Seeds

A lovely wildflower and good garden plant.  The Ox-Eye Daisy is a good upright plant, with large white daisy flowers with yellow centres from around May to August. The flowers sit on tall sturdy stalks 30-60cm high and they look great growing in a group or in a wildflower meadow or garden.


The Ox-Eye Daisy will grow in sun and part shade and prefers well drained soil.  It will tolerate light grazing and mowing.

 

Pack of 1g (approx 3000) seeds.  Seeds are generally sown directly in the ground in autumn or spring when germination is best.  They can also be sown in seed trays, generally spring to autumn. Flowering starts in the second year. Sowing is easy and instructions are printed on the packet.
