Shasta Daisy


It was the Perennial Plant Association’s Plant of the Year for 2003. Growing up to 3 feet tall with 4-5 inch flower heads, it flowers from summer to fall if deadheaded occasionally, the flower stalks stand up in hard summer rains, it is great for northern as well as southern gardeners, and the flowers make great cut flowers. Give it full sun and average soil and let this long-lived evergreen perennial brighten up your garden.

Shasta Daisy is a wonderful choice to be grown as a specimen or en masse in the perennial border, in naturalistic landscapes, to attract butterflies.
