The perfect shasta daisy - AlaskaThe story of the Shasta Daisy begins with a gardener from the late 1800's named Luther Burbank. Born and raised in Massachusetts he moved to Santa Rosa CA at the age of 19.  He was amazed at the climate and soil CA offered and  deemed it capable of growing anything. He experimented with many types of plants but had a strong passion for a New England "weed" - the ox-eye daisy.  He spent years working to develop the perfect daisy. His efforts paid off and he introduced the Shasta Daisy in 1901.  One of the offspring's of Luther Burbank's perfect daisy is Alaska.  Considered by many gardeners to still be the best best Shasta Daisy, Alaska boast 3 inch wide flowers that are pure white with perfect yellow centers.  The stems are long and very stiff making them perfect for cutting. Alaska is the hardiest strain of all the Shasta Daisies.
