Abstract

Leucanthemum vulgare, Lam. (Asteraceae) (ox-eye daisy) is a perennial herb and an aggressive invader native to Eurasia. Today, the species is found in all continents except for Antarctica, and is an invasive in many countries. In this study, we present records of invading populations of Leucanthemum vulgare in the Limpopo province, South Africa, covering over 21.717 m2 of critically endangered grassland. Management guidelines for Leucanthemum vulgare are provided.
