Until recently, we listed Shasta Daisies under the genus Chrysanthemum, but as long-time 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 white, they compete in brilliance with the sun. When you want white daisies, this is where you look.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Admittedly, I have had these in my garden only a few months so I can't speak to overwintering, but I can say that they have outperformed my expectations so far. They are dense, deep green plants, absolutely covered in blooms. So covered, you almost can't see the green. I had no intention of adding white to my new garden, but these caught my eye simply because my cat is named Daisy May, so how could I not? I'm so glad I did, because they have been spectacular. Neighbors have stopped to ask what they are. The first blooms are just now beginning to fade. I am dead-heading in hopes that they keep blooming. When I do the border on the opposite side next year, I will include them again.

Just FYI, this is a first year garden in a new house. Our soil is very thick clay, so I dug out the garden about 20 inches and mixed in rock, sand, and garden soil. I raised the bed level 4 inches over the lawn height. The plants were planted according to spacing specifications, with May Night sage behind and Jan Louise dianthus in front.

Stays small and covered in blooms

In a raised bed, has survived one winter so far. Heavy bloomer, strong and stiff stems.

Not even sure it survived

Planted it in an admittedly mature garden. Never really took off. By the end of the summer I think it just disappeared.

Sparkle and Pizazz!

These plants are in my sunken garden. Even though they are interspersed with a variety of bulb plants and other perennials, they bloom all throughout the summer months and even into the fall.

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.
