Oxeye Daisy Seeds


With large white blooms, which appear between May and September, oxeye daisies are a typical grassland plant and are traditionally found in hay meadows and along field margins although they are also well suited to perennial garden borders. Able to grow and mature quickly, the oxeye daisy is usually the first species in a wildflower mix to flower and can do so quite prolifically as it quickly moves into space other slower-developing plants have yet to occupy. As a result, the oxeye daisy is often the predominant flower in the early years of a newly sown meadow.

The packet contains native oxeye daisy seed grown and harvested in Kent.

Flowers: May to September.
Height: 30–60 cm tall.
Sow: sown in the open oxeye daisy germinates readily in both spring and autumn
Lifecycle: a perennial wildflower, the oxeye daisy also has the potential to regenerate readily from seed providing there is sufficient open ground in which it can establish itself.
Best for: a wide range of conditions, from full sun to partial shade. A highly adaptable wildflower, it is most commonly found in average, well-draining soil but can also grow in alkaline soils and poor, nutrient-deficient soils.
Also known as: moon daisy, moon penny, maudlin daisy, and marguerite.
Latin name: Leucanthemum vulgare.
The flattened yellow center of the oxeye daisy flower, which is so named because it resembles the eye of an ox, is made up of many smaller flowers which hold a store of nectar. For this reason, the oxeye daisy is one of the best wildflower species for pollinators in the UK. Each flower measures 1 to 3 inches in diameter and has seven to 20 petals and its stems are thin and 30-60cm tall, usually branching to produce two or more flower heads. It has spoon-shaped leaves at its base and thin, jagged leaves along the stem.
