Shasta daisies are unsurpassed in the border and for cutting. Cheerful flowers late spring to midsummer. Combines well with any other plant you choose. Also known as Leucanthemum superbum.
Give them a sunny spot and a balanced plant food in the spring and again when buds form. Remove uncut flowers as they fade to promote further bloom. Give these plenty of space since they don't like to be crowded. Can be divided every 2-3 years in spring or fall. Good winter drainage is essential.
