Are you looking to add some cheerful blooms to your perennial garden bed? Shasta daisies offer universal appeal with their abundant floral display and compact size.
Happiest in a sunny border, these daises will return every spring or early summer and bloom into early fall. They are adored for their long-lasting blooms, attraction to bees and butterflies, and the height they add to a cut flower bouquet!
Shasta daisies tend to form clumps that are 2 to 3 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide. They typically bear all-white daisy petals, yellow disk florets, and contrasting glossy, dark green leaves.
"Black bees on the clover-heads drowsily clinging,
Where tall feathered grasses and buttercups sway;
And all through the fields a white sprinkle of daisies,
Open-eyed at the setting of day."
