Shasta Daisy

Height:

1 – 3 feet

Light:

full sun

By: Meriel Bradley

The Shasta Daisy is a perfect, low maintenance perennial and is great for naturalizing to fill out your flower beds with blooms year after year.

They will flower from early to late summer and deadheading the spent flowers will extend their bloom period.

Grow in full sun for the best blooms.

To keep them vigorous, divide them in early spring or late summer every 3 to 4 years. They will also self-seed if you leave some of the spent blooms on the plant at the end of the summer even though the plants that grow from seed may not look like the parent plant.

In the fall, after they have finished blooming, cut back the dead stems to ground level, and cover with a layer of mulch to provide winter protection.
