Leucanthemum × superbum ‘Freak!’


Shasta Daisy

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.316.830


(=‘LEUZ0001’) No sunny border would seem complete without the familiar presence of Shasta Daisies. This unique selection has large flowers, consisting of layers of white, fluffy petals surrounding a yellow button centre over attractive dark green, toothed foliage. Award winner. Excellent for cutting. 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). Bred by Har Stemkens of Syngenta Flowers. From Blooms of Bressingham®.
