Plant Type: Perennials

'Sunny Side Up' is a compact Shasta daisy cultivar that typically grows 15-20" tall with an upward, branching habit. It is noted for its large semi-double blooms (to 3" diameter) with white rays and yellow center disks. Multiple flowers per stem. Blooms most of the summer. Excellent and long-lasting fresh cut flower.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Good drainage is essential. Wet soils in winter can be fatal. Tolerates some light shade, particularly in hot summer climates. Remove spent flower heads to promote additional bloom. Divide clumps as needed (every 2-3 years) to maintain vigor. Plants are somewhat short-lived. Consider cutting stems back to basal leaves after flowering to preserve plant energies and perhaps prolong plant life. 'Sunny Side Up' does not come true from seed.
