Product Details

From July to September, old-time summer garden favorite Leucanthemum x superbum 'Becky' becomes a living bouquet of huge (4") Daisies that stand 3–4' tall. Even at this height, staking isn't required, and the plant's long, strong stems are great for cutting. 'Becky' originated in the Atlanta area and is an excellent Shasta Daisy for the South, although it thrives in New England as well.

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 well-drained soil and lots of sun. When you want Daisies, this is where to look.

How to use (AR) Augmented Reality to see this item in your garden

1. Make sure your device has a camera and is connected to the internet. If you want to see the item in your garden and are on your computer, click the 3D Model image on your computer and a QR code will open that will allow you to open the link on your device.

2. Once you have clicked the 3D Model image on your device, go outside and face your device camera toward where you would like to see how the item will look in your garden.

3. To see the item in your own garden, click on the [AR] link in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. You might need to wait a few seconds for the AR experience to load. This only works from a device with a camera such as a mobile phone or a tablet.

4. Allow your device to access the camera, if prompted.

5. Point your device's camera at the area where you want to place the plant or garden.

6. The website will use Augmented Reality to place a virtual image of the item in the space you are looking at through your device’s camera. You can adjust the position of the virtual item by using two fingers to resize the item, or one finger to move the item around the screen, until you're satisfied with how it looks. To get an accurate sense of the size of this item, we recommend measuring out the area where you would like to plant it (the spacing for this item is 24-36"), and staking or flagging the borders so that you will have an accurate idea for the mature size of the item while using AR (the magnifier only enlarges the 3D model of the item, it does not change the actual size of the item). The 3D model represents a mature plant that is approximately 3 years old.

7. Move your device around to view the item from different angles and get a better idea of how it will look in your garden.

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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Gorgeous

I’ve had my Shasta Becky for two years now (delivered in Spring of 2018). The first year was relatively uneventful, with all six plants growing to about half size, with a few flowers, but nothing special. After overwintering quite well despite a long, cold, and windy winter in Zone 5, they developed and grew like I could never have dreamed of. Incredibly healthy, spreading and filling out several feet, with literally hundreds of blooms that barely left any open space over a six foot circle! I almost need to divide them and transplant already to other parts of my garden.

Never Again!

I ordered three of these plants on May 9th - and I received them (after I called 2x to ask what the holdup was) May 30th! Seems like a long wait to me. Anyway, after opening the box I discovered that all three had several very yellow leaves, one had broken off stems from the packaging, and all three were more pot bound than other plants I have ever bought - and that includes nearly dead and marked down to $! plants from Lowe's. I paid $10.95 for each of these!!! I've done business with WFF off and on for 25 years and in my opinion they've gone from having spectacular plants and great customer service to having poorly cared for plants with virtually no customer service. NEVER AGAIN FOR ME!!!

Only 1 of the 3 bloomed

Of the 3 plants I ordered, only 1 of them bloomed. Granted, it did at least have more than one flower. Maybe better luck next year. Good size plants and foliage.

Lovely plant but you have to deadhead

They bloomed long and spectacularly, with frequent deadheading. Deadheading is work, but worth it. They do like sun; one plant doesn't get quite as much as others and leans into the sun a bit.

Classic, statuesque Becky--perfect lady

Plays wonderfully with Rudbeckia and Echinacea. Never flops over, has stood up to minor hail without flopping. Not affected by steamy Maine summers. Had enough to divide in 3 seasons.Cons- spent flowers look brown and dirty, have to diligently deadhead but are rewarded with rebloom for your trouble.

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.
