Leucanthemella serotina (Autumn Ox-Eye Daisy)

Autumn Ox-Eye Daisy, Giant Daisy, High Daisy, Chrysanthemum serotinum, Chrysanthemum uliginosum, Leucanthemum maximum uliginosum


Highly floriferous and robust, Leucanthemella serotina (Autumn Ox-Eye Daisy) is a tall, bushy perennial valued for its abundant floral display in the late season garden. It produces large, pure white, charming daisy flowers, 3 in. across (7 cm), with greenish-yellow centers atop rigid, leafy stems. Borne either singly or in sprays from late summer to the first hard frost, they withstand heavy rain and wind without too much difficulty and usually do not require staking. The foliage of toothed, lance-shaped, dark green leaves, is disease resistant. Easy to grow, this giant daisy is useful to create a cheerful impact at the back of the border. Part shade tolerant, it is also perfect for illuminating darker areas of the garden.
