Oxeye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare) is one of those summer flowers that’s so common we sometimes forget to stop and admire it. It’s a member of the Asteraceae family. The flower heads consist of yellow disk florets in the center and white ray florets around the circumference.
After blooming, the flower heads become seed heads. Oxeye daisy continues growing, blooming and developing seeds throughout the summer.
The leaves have an interesting — almost indescribable — shape. (And they are edible!)
