Product Details

Product Details

From July to September, this old-time favorite for summer gardens becomes a living bouquet of huge (4″) daisies that stand 3–4′ tall. Even at this height, staking isn't required, and its long, strong stems are excellent 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 good, rich soil and lots of sun. When you want Daisies, this is where to look.

Shipping

Shipping
Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: CALIFORNIA, IDAHO, NEVADA, OREGON, TEXAS, UTAH, WASHINGTON.

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.

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.

Never Again!

A viewer from Newport NH

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

hippieluver from Kannapolis, NC

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.

Did you find this review useful? yes no


Lovely plant but you have to deadhead

WorkerB from Shoreline CT

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

brownthumb from southern coastal Maine

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 x superbum Becky

Shotsie from Murray, KY

This daisy will live and flourish in the South, unlike so many flowers in English gardens, but it doesn't have a very long bloom season here.

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.
