I'd never seen this before - the Shasta daisies (Leucanthemum × superbum) are so sodden, with all the rain we've had this month, that they are actually sprouting!!
These garden plants are, of course, related to that well-know "wildflower" thug, Leucanthemum vulgare, famous for taking over many attempted wildflower meadows by smothering all the dainty little wildflowers with their tough, coarse basal rosettes... not that I'm biased of course, I just don't like them.
And like the "wildflower" thug relation, they seed everywhere.
So normally, I dead-head at the first sign of a browning flower: and occasionally, you do actually get a second flush of smaller flowers.
Not this year!
I didn't do the dead-heading, and now the flower-heads are dead, blackened, and absolutely sodden.
And as you can see, they appear to be sprouting...
So they are definitely not going on the compost heap!
