Plant Type: Perennials

No two blooms are alike on this fringed and frilly, semi to fully double Shasta Daisy. Two inch wide, solid white petals surround a small buttery center. This selection is noted for its prolific flowering tendency. There's nothing quite like this 'Crazy Daisy'! Shasta Daisies are all-time favorites for the perennial border. The cheery flowers begin to appear in late spring and continue on for several months if faithfully deadheaded. Shasta's mix so effortlessly with other perennials that no garden should be without them!

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Leucanthemums require full sun and well-drained soil to be at their best. Winter drainage is especially important; planting in raised beds will help to provide these conditions. Shasta's make good perennials for Southern gardens, though partial shade is recommended in the warmest zones. Division can be done in either spring or fall, and is recommended due to this perennial's tendency to be short-lived.
