"Loves me, Loves me not..."

The Ox-eye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare) is a perennial herb that is both loved and hated throughout the world.

Adored for its bright disposition, the name 'daisy' evolved from the old English 'day's eye' that referred to the way the flower opens and closes with the sunlight. Because of this, early doctors believed the daisy could cure eye ailments. Daisy tea can relax the bronchials and soothe stomach ulcers as well as digestive troubles.

As healing as it may be, the daisy also has a reputation as an undesirable weed that has spread to 40 countries from its native Europe. In Canada, its invasive nature is detrimental to numerous crops.

Despite these concerns, there's nothing quite like a crown of daisies or a vase full of its cheerful blooms. And girls are unlikely to ever stop asking it if, He loves me, he loves me not.
