Shasta Daisy - Leucanthemum lacustre x maximum = L. x superbum
Similar to Oxeye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare) but a more vigorous plant with larger flowerheads (70 to 90 mm) and broader, toothed leaves.
Often cultivated, this plant occasionally escapes and establishes in the wild. It may be found on disturbed ground, embankments, verges and roadsides.
Flowering mid May to late July.
Widespread in Britain as an escape from cultivation which has become established in the wild.
Infrequent or under recorded in Leicestershire and Rutland. In the 1979 Flora survey of Leicestershire it was found in 13 of the 617 tetrads.
