An introduction from Europe, locally well established as a weed of lawns, golf courses, and rarely disturbed places. First collected in 1897 at Port Huron (St. Clair Co.), but very rarely gathered again until the 1960’s.

Resembles a miniature ox-eye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare) in its white rays and yellow disk, but the spatulate leaves are all crowded at the base of the stem.
