Ox Eye Sunflower produces a profusion of bright yellow flowers in early to mid-summer. Excellent for clay soils, it grows in any reasonably fertile soil and thrives in moist, heavy soils. A relative of the sunflowers, Heliopsis helianthoides does not spread by rhizomes, but it will self-sow readily, on open soil. Other common names include Smooth Oxeye, Smooth Sunflower and False Sunflower.
