Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #28.

Hi everyone! Today’s wildflower is the “ox-eye daisy”, also called the “common daisy”. This is not a native wildflower but comes from Europe, it was brought here in the 1800s so it has now become a well established wildflower. Most people consider it a noxious weed and should be totally eradicated. But it really is a beautiful and cheery flower. Plus, it is a wildflower that attracts bees and butterflies better than most flowers. Considering the concern for our wild bees and butterflies, we should be encouraging these flowers, not getting rid of them. And they normally grow in areas where our native wildflowers don’t grow, such as along roadsides, in very poor soil, even in sand and gravel areas. But these are just my thoughts. They bloom from June to August, the flowers are about 2 inches (5cm) across and will grow up to 3 feet (90cm) high, though normally closer to 12 to 16 inches (30 to 40cm). They prefer sunny locations but will grow in partially shady areas too. They can be found throughout Canada and the US. I hope you have a great day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
