Leucanthemum × superbum ‘Snowcap’

Shasta Daisy

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.316.680

(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 centre. 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).
