Plant Common Name

Double Oxeye Daisy, Oxeye Daisy

General Description

The pretty double daisies of this long-blooming dwarf oxeye really stand out. Angel Daisy™ is a patented perennial that was bred by Daniel McDonald in Cobbitty, New South Wales, Australia. It is a clump-forming hardy perennial that’s perfect for small borders and containers.

In spring Angel Daisy™ offers neat clumps of green toothed leaves. In late spring to early summer it sends up many double anemone-type daisies of white with yellow-green centers. These flowerheads are lightly fragrant and attract bees and butterflies. The blooms will continue flowering with greater reliability if they are regularly deadheaded.

Leucanthemum perform best in full sun and fertile soil with good drainage. This unusually compact cultivar works well in many sunny garden situations and is quite easy to grow. Its clumps grow broader over time and may require division after three to four years.
