Leucanthemum vulgare   Oxeye Daisy D I

Leucantheum vulgare

This is such a common plant of the verges and banks of roads, particularly new roads, that it might be part of the seed mix used to populate and stabilise heaped soil at the side of the road. It is a hardy as well as a common plant and you can sometimes find one in flower in March and always until the frosts appear in late summer and autumn. Even in November, there are still a few flowering plants of L. vulgare to be seen.

Apart from a few places in northern Scotland this plant is found everywhere in the British Isles.
