wonderful plants are right at home in any sunny perennial garden,

The Shasta Daisy has been adored by gardeners for generations and
remains a favorite with our customers. Flower stalks can grow
24 - 36 inches tall, while the dark green foliage remains 6 - 12
inches tall. Flowering begins in early spring and continues
through out the summer. Their long, stiff stems make them very good
for cutting and using in flower arrangements.

of liquid fish emulsion in late spring. Cut back spent flower
stems to the ground to encourage heavier flowering.
