Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Grows best in a moist to average, well-drained soil, in full sun. Can tolerate extreme conditions once established. Spreads by rhizomes, but is also a prolific seeder, so it can quickly get out of control. Prune flowers immediately after they finish to help control unwanted spread.

Additional Notes about Oxeye Daisy:

Introduced and naturalized throughout all of North America. Invasive, and prohibited in at least ten states.

As an alternative, if you really want that daisy look, consider Shasta Daisy varieties: Leucanthemum x superbum spp.
