Ox-eye Daisies (Leucanthemum vulgare) are blooming in sunny roadsides, pastures, and disturbed habitats. They will continue to bloom into the fall and be pollinated by bees and flies. Native to Eurasia, Ox-eye Daisies were introduced as an ornamental, but have since naturalized across much of North America.

They are a member of Family Asteraceae (aster = star), referring to the star-shaped flower head. Although each head may look like one flower, it is actually a cluster of dozens of flowers. Each white “petal” is a flower! They are a form called a Ray Flower. The golden center of the head consists of dozens of individual flowers as well, each of a form called a Disc Flower.
