LEUCANTHEMUM

Until recently, the species discussed here—including Shasta daisy, which is arguably the most well-known chrysanthemum—were classed as Chrysanthemum species. All bear the beautiful white summer daisies that are cottage-garden essentials.

Leucanthemum vulgare

European native naturalized in many places; spreads by rhizomes and self-seeding. Grows to 2 ft. high, 1 ft. wide, with bright green foliage and yellow-centered white daisies from late spring to fall.
