It has a medium tall un-branched stem topped by a solitary composite flower of white rays (petals) surrounding a yellow disc floret. Once you become familiar with them the leaves of oxeye daisy are quite distinctive with their toothed spoon shape and long leaf stalks. Oxeye daisy is also known as moon daisy or dog daisy. The open flower heads of oxeye daisy attract a large range of pollinating insects particularly bees, butterflies and hoverflies.
