Early June and the Oxeyes are out. Our first Oxeye Daisy has opened in our MeadowMat. It is a little late this year, normally it appears in May but it’s been a late Spring. We spotted the buds a couple of weeks ago. But they have simply refused to open up until the sun appeared in earnest. The Ox-eye Daisy is a perennial commonly found in meadows and waste ground, railway banks and road verges.
The open flower heads of the Ox-eye Daisy attract a large range of pollinating insects particularly bees, butterflies and hoverflies.
