A lush oasis of Ox-Eye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare) growing in cracks of a concrete slab that once supported a building in Olde Kensington, Philadelphia.
A note about scientific names: this one has two Greek roots: leucos = white and anthemom = flower, and then the vulgare part is pronounced “vul-gah-ree,” and is Latin for “common.”
