Product Details

Product Details

A prolific Shasta Daisy, 'Banana Cream' features bright, 4″ lemon-yellow blooms that turn butter yellow. They have an extra row of ray petals, so they look even fuller. The compact plants produce flower buds on side shoots, which means these cheerful blooms keep coming all summer long. Dark green foliage has increased disease resistant. PP 23,181

Shasta Daisies (Leucanthemum x superbum) are the same plants known by many under the genus Chrysanthemum, but as longtime gardeners, we've become used to having plant names change. What hasn't changed is the plants themselves, which are some of the showiest and most reliable perennials for the summer garden. At peak bloom, they produce a mass of daisies so clean and bright they compete in brilliance with the sun. All they require is good, rich soil and lots of sun. When you want Daisies, this is where to look.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

Leucanthemum (Shasta Daisy)

Formerly classified as Chrysanthemum, Shasta Daisies are some of the showiest and most reliable plants for the summer garden. They produce an abundant supply of flowers that come in a range of sizes and shapes. Their colors make for stunning displays in mixed beds.

Light/Watering: Plant in full sun in well-drained soil.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Leucanthemum enjoy rich fertile soil. Apply a balanced fertilizer (such as 10-10-10) in early spring.

Companions: Plant with Liatris, Hemerocallis, Monarda, Campanula and Delphinium.

Reflowering: Deadhead to promote new buds and trim back stems to about 12″ after flowering to encourage rebloom.

Dividing/Transplanting: The center of older varieties will weaken over the years and the plant should be lifted and divided in spring every 2 or 3 years. For more information about dividing perennials, check out Making More Perennials: A Guide to Simple Division.
