Leucanthemum is a genus of the helianthus, (sunflower), family Astercaeae and are native to Europe and Northern Africa.
The leucanthemum has arguably the nearest resemblance to a wild daisy of any commercially grown cut flower.
In the wholesale flower markets leucanthemum is sold in wraps of 50 stems and are usually no taller than 50/60cm. Leucanthemum is a fragile flower and has a short vase life. It does look very effective when included in wedding flowers though and is well worth consideration.

To get the best from your wholesale cut Leucanthemums please read the care instructions below carefully:
- Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle with a sharp knife.
- Fill sterilised buckets with cold luke warm and add flower food.
- Place the leucanthemum in the buckets - up to their necks in water.

Never leave cut flowers in direct sun light, near a radiator, in a draft or near fruit. (The gas used to ripen fruit will harm most flowers). Keep the leucanthemum in a cool place and always keep out of the way of children.
