How to grow OxEye Daisy (Chrysanthemum leucanthemum)
  Soil preference: Adaptable
  Sun/Shade: Full sun to light shade.
  Moisture Requirements: Average moisture, well-drained.
  Instructions: This is one of our love-hate wildflowers. Almost everyone loves it, and it's established in all 50 states and in Canada. But many states consider it a weed, so check to see if its allowed in your area. Common roadside daisies grow anywhere, including in wet spots, and form tough big root masses with large blooming clumps. Very easy from seed. Plant the seed anytime, and expect bloom after one full winter. (This species will not bloom in no-frost regions.)
