Flower Detail

Chrysanthemum leucanthemum

Ox-eyed daisies are now on the Colorado no-sale list. They take over in some environments, but not in our harsh environment. Anyway, I like then. They form a dense mat and also reseed readily. Much earlier than the shasta daisies. They have more fern like leaves than do shastas.
