Leucanthemum × superbum ‘Snowcap’

Shasta Daisy
USDA Zone: 4-9
(Formerly Chrysanthemum maximum) No sunny border would seem complete without the familiar presence of Shasta Daisies. This is an especially compact selection, with masses of single white flowers, each with a yellow center. Excellent for cutting. Also great for edging, or in mixed containers. Removing faded flowers will greatly increase the blooming time. Divide plants in the spring every 2 to 3 years to maintain vigour. Shasta Daisy is a well-behaved garden hybrid and should not be confused with the weedy Ox-eye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare).
