Hi.... I would be grateful if some kind gardener could identify this 'daisy' for me. It is a good 5 feet tall and the leaves start to grow in a kind of rosette which then 'stretches' and several flowers stalks then sprout from the rosette. It was given to me last spring, and all I was told was "It's a nice white daisy" Smile
Thanks in advance

My guess would be a Leucanthemum but which one we will have to await the plant guru Silversurfer to confirm if I'm right fingers crossed.

Just as an aside, and because I like the story....I asked the lady who gave me the plant if she knew what it was. Apparently, many years ago, she regularly drove the Mullingar to Delvin road, and spotted these in a garden. She eventually found the courage to knock on the door and ask for a piece of root. The owner would accept no money for it, but did accept some home made gingerbread my friend had in her car. To this day, her family refer to these flowers as 'Gingerbread Daisies' Very Happy

Believe I might have cracked it! After ages trawling through books and the internet, I finally found, on the RHS website, Leucanthemella serotina, otherwise known as ....wait for it.......Giant Daisy Laughing Laughing
Does anybody care to confirm please?
Thanks

Well done kail291.
That looks an excellent match.
Not one that I have come across before.

Sounds an excellent plant for the garden.
