Long-Lasting Cut Flowers
Large showy flowers are comprised of layers of creamy ivory to lemon-yellow petals that mingle with shorter fancy-fringed central petals. Aptly named. Sturdy wind-resistant, well-branched stems need no staking. The Real Series of Shasta Daisies are very floriferous with improved disease resistance. A Daisy symbolizes purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty and patience. Shastas offer cheerful summer flowers and combine easily with their neighbors. Whatever the color combination put a Shasta between them and it works!

Leucanthemum General Information

Shasta daisies are unsurpassed in the border and for cutting. Cheerful flowers late spring to midsummer. Combines easily with their neighbors. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Leucanthemum 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. Good winter drainage is helpful.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
