Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum Leucanthemum Crazy Daisy) 100 seeds (#1888)
No sunny border would seem complete without the familiar presence of Shasta Daisies.
This is a unique strain, featuring flowers with very finely-cut or fringed petals surrounding a golden centre. Also excellent in tubs or mixed containers. Flowers are ideal for cutting.
Divide plants in the spring every 2 to 3 years to maintain vigour. Removing faded flowers regularly will greatly increase the blooming time. Attractive to butterflies.
