Oxeye Daisy 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.
