A grassland perennial wild flower. Introduced species to New Zealand. Native to Europe and the temperate regions of Asia. The leaves of oxeye daisy are quite deeply lobed, different to daisy leaves. The flowers are the same colour as daisy, with a yellow centre and outer white ray florets. But oxeye daisy flowers are much larger than daisy flowers, usually about 6 cm in diameter.
Most commonly found in waste places, especially along roadsides.
Also called dog daisy, margarite or moon daisy.
