The autumn ox-eye, have white daisy-like flowers, late  in the year, one grown in UK gardens, L. serotina, from Europe and Ukraine and one L. linearis from the Far East, which is not available. Both would prefer a more moisture-retentive soil

As with all 'daisy-like' flowers, the disc-flowers in the centre of the large flowerhead produce nectar and pollen that are attractive to insects, especially bees, in late summer. L. serotina is increasingly being found away from cultivation, but is not seen as posing any particular threats.
