Leucanthemum 'Becky' is a very tall selection that exhibits excellent tolerance to summer heat and humidity. This Shasta daisy cultivar is larger than most others, growing 3-4 feet tall on rigid stems which do not require staking. A must for the sun garden, the classic white rays with yellow center disks brighten and complement other perennials. 'Becky' is noted for its long bloom period of July through September and makes an excellent and long-lasting fresh cut flower. Attracts butterflies!
