(Leucanthemum x superbum)
Shasta daisies are one of the favourites of Australian gardeners. Like their close relatives the Marguerite daisies, they are long flowering and easy to grow.
The large white daisy tlowers have yellow centres and appear summer to autumn in cool climates.
POSITION & USES
Plant in a sunny position in well drained and cultivated garden soil. It looks great en masse, as a feature plant (eg. either side of a pathway), mixed with other shrubs and perennials or in a large tub
After flowering finishes cut the bush back 30-40% and fertilise.
Regular applications of Seasol and Power Feed will keep it looking its best.
