Oxeye Daisy

Oxeye daisy is not generally considered as a weed of agronomic crops or cultivated sites.  It is an erect-growing plant that regenerates each year from its underground rhizomes.  In Missouri, flowering stems emerge from overwintering rosettes in the spring.

Oxeye daisy adds color to Missouri's rights-of-way during the spring.  It is also encountered in pastures, primarily in areas of low fertility.
