May Queen (Leucanthemum vulgare ‘May Queen’) has been blooming since May.
Ox-eye daisies are native to the area and a must have in the garden.
May Queen is very attractive to bees and butterflies and unattractive to rabbits and dears.
Though having the May in its name the ox-eye daisy (Chrysanthemum leucanthemym ‘May Queen’) starts to bloom in June up here in the north.
The month of June has been exceptionally warm. Usually the weather is quite cool but not this year.
Everything grows fast and soon the lilies will open their flowers.
It has been dry up here in the north. We have not gotten a good rain for a month now.
Sitting in a summer cottage and watching a thunderstorm going past but not close enough for any rain.
You can see the dryness from the plants. Lack of water makes them smaller and better suitable for the dry weather.
The May Queens are doing well though. They are perfectly suited for long dry periods and seem to enjoy the weather.
Daisies are growing wild here like nearly everywhere else.
Last year planted some May Queens and they are blooming now. To be honest I expected them to have stronger stems. They do not take the rain and wind well.
Must find a stronger variety to grow since the summer rains are not going to go away.
