General Information +

Botanical: Leucanthemum x superbum

Common: Shasta Daisy

General Characteristics: Attractive large single white daisy flowers with yellow centers. Give them a sunny spot and a balanced plant food in the spring and once again when buds form. Remove the uncut flowers as they fade to promote further bloom. A hardy perennial, forming dense colonies once established. Native to Europe, it has naturalized throughout all regions of the United States. The white petalled flowers with golden yellow centers are borne individually on single erect stems. Prefers full sun to partial shade in fertile soil. Excellent as a ground cover or border plant since the foliage is attractive and remains green all year.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Pests or Diseases: Leaf spots, stem rots and leaf miners are occasional problems

Planting Instructions: Easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface. It is very important to water plants thoroughly soon after transplanting and to maintain consistent moisture throughout the growing cycle. Tolerates light shade in hot climates. Remove spent flower heads to promote additional blooming. Divide clumps every 2-3 years to maintain vigor.
