Common Name: Shasta Daisy
In our trials, we were incredibly impressed with this super compact, highly floriferous selection and we are very excited to be able to offer it to you this year.
In the Midwest, this plant typically grows 20-24” tall and wide and blooms from early summer into late summer. However, to account for the national variability in Proven Winners trials, they describe this plant as growing 12-24” tall and blooming from spring to fall with deadheading.
Three inch wide, single, pure white, daisy-like flowers with a gold button center formed a solid dome of bloom atop these plants in our trials. It put on a terrific garden show!
Shasta Daisies are all-time favorites for the perennial border. They mix so effortlessly with other perennials that no garden should be without them!
