Eau de Sweaty Dog


Leucanthemum Superbum from our garden...
Don't be fooled by the beauty of the Leucanthemum Superbum.
Yes it's dead easy to grow, the large flowerheads open a creamy yellow before fading to white, it looks fabulous with its long stems pushing the daisy-like flowers up to lure the insects in. 
However...take a whiff of its 'perfume' at your peril.
If you're 'into' the scent of a sweaty dog then this is the plant for you.
I guess you can't have everything.

A sweaty dog? Really? Too funny! They are beautiful flowers though.
