Shasta Daisy, Leucanthemum × Superbum is a Beautiful Flowering Perennial

 

This perennial is a favorite among casual gardeners and cut-flower enthusiasts who know this simple, lovely flower brings sunshine to any landscape or room. Shasta Daisy is similar to the roadside wildflower that dots American fields and roadsides. Still, it has been bred to consistently return and multiply every year while producing more abundant, more vibrant blooms. Each plant produces clumps of multiple stems that grow to a height of 2-3 feet and will span 2 feet across. Each stem features thick, dark green foliage and is topped with a flower featuring a bright yellow round center surrounded by a row of white petals. Hardy in zones 3-9, Shasta Daisy prefers full sun but will tolerate partial shade. It will grow in almost any soil condition but thrives in well-drained loam. Planted in the spring, Shasta Daisies will reward gardeners with flowers from late spring through early fall. Removing spent blooms encourage more to grow, and cutting flowers will only help the plants spread.

Shasta Daisy, Leucanthemum × Superbum is a Tall Blooming Choice for Rear Bordering and Mixed Flower Gardening

 

The tall blooms make an excellent rear border for a mixed flower garden, and they bring rustic simplicity to areas along walkways and fences. Shasta Daisy may not be the same as a roadside cousin, but it will bring naturalized beauty to any setting and can even be grown in containers for portable appeal. These very low-maintenance beauties are a must for novice gardeners, and children will appreciate the butterflies they attract and have flowers to cut to surprise visitors. Shasta Daisy is merely a Can't-do-without favorite that will continue to add charm to its surroundings for years to come.
