Chrysanthemum General Information

Shasta daisies are unsurpassed in the border and for cutting. Cheerful flowers late spring to midsummer. Combines easily with their neighbors. Whatever the color combination, put a Shasta between them and it works! Also known as Leucanthemum superbum.

Chrysanthemum Plant Care

Give them a sunny spot and a balanced plant food in the spring and again when buds form for healthy, showy plants. Remove 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. To prevent potential flopping, cut back by one-third in mid-spring or install plant supports. Good winter drainage is essential.
