Leucanthemum superbum 'Snowcap'
Butterfly IconRock Garden Icon

Plant Type: Perennials

An outstanding cultivar! Pure white, single flowers are produced in abundance atop bushy mounds of foliage. 'Snowcap' has sturdy, uniform habit. Due to its compact nature, it tolerates the weather (wind, rain, etc.) better than other Shasta's.

 


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. Division can be done in either spring or fall, and is recommended due to this perennial's tendency to be short-lived.
