Leucanthemum × superbum Western Star Taurus

Shasta Daisy

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.850.920

(Formerly known as Chrysanthemum) Shasta Daisies are the familiar garden daisy, and always a dependable choice for sunny borders in reasonably fertile soil. This is a compact selection producing large, white overlapping petals surrounding a bright yellow centre. Blooms continuously throughout the summer. Ideal for near the front of a sunny border, as a cut flower and in containers. Beautiful when massed. Attractive to butterflies. Removing faded flowers will greatly increase the blooming time. Shasta Daisy is a well-behaved garden hybrid, and should not be confused with the weedy Ox-eye Daisy, Leucanthemum vulgare.
