The plants are a snap to grow and look terrific in a mixed border or naturalized in a lawn. However, in some locations, oxeye daisy can become invasive so always remove flower heads before they mature because each flower can spread thousands of seeds. Oxeye daisy grows 18 to 24 inches tall and make excellent cut flowers. The plants prefer a sunny location, but will also grow in partial shade. Butterflies love the nectar-rich blooms.
