Leucanthemum (Shasta Daisy) is one of the most popular and well-loved perennials, grown for its cheery, large daisy flowers that appear in late spring through the autumn. Bright white flowers with golden yellow centers are borne individually on upright stems which form a neat clump with toothed, lance-shaped leaves. An easy to grow perennial, they are eye-catching in any garden. They make a great cut flower and work well as an accent plant along borders. Shasta Daisy prefers full sun to partial shade and fertile soil. Give it a sunny spot and a balanced plant food in the spring and once again when buds form, and remove spent flowers to promote further bloom. They are very hardy, forming dense colonies once established, and an excellent choice as a ground cover or border plant since the foliage is attractive and remains green all season. They tolerate light shade in hot climates. Divide clumps every 2-3 years to maintain vigor. Native to Europe, they have naturalized throughout all regions of the United States.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root. Tags are included with bare root perennials from DeGroot.
