Leucanthemum x superbum 'Crazy Daisy'

Shasta Daisy

Vigorous, pretty, and easy to grow, Leucanthemum 'Crazy Daisy' is a frilly twist on the classic white Shasta daisy. Its tall, upright stems are topped with large, double, fringed white daisies with distinct yellow button centers. Multiple flowers per stem bloom most of the summer. These heavy bloomers display their largest flowers early. Deadhead to encourage smaller lateral blooms, then cut stems to the ground once flowering halts. Divide in spring or fall. Excellent and long-lasting fresh cut flower.

Shasta Daisy Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Good drainage is essential. Tolerates some light shade, particularly in hot summer climates. Remove spent flower heads to promote additional bloom, cutting back to basal foliage.
