Chrysanthemum Leucanthemum-----Family, Composite. Color, white rays and yellow disks. Leaves, cut or toothed, those below with long petioles, spatulate; those above oblong, pinnatifid. June to August.
Fields. Not so common southward. The wonder is that so simple a flower can carry so long a name. This is the common white daisy, dear to city maidens, abhorred by cultivators of the soil. It has come from Europe, and is a weed most persistent, aggressive. Not pleasant smelling, but undoubtedly, when massed in big vases, a pretty thing. The feverfew and marguerite of the gardens are refined types of this weed. The English daisy is pink, "crimson-tipped," as Burns says, and is a near relative of the white-weed.
