Shasta Daisy

'Ooh La LaSpider' is a compact free flowering variety with attractive, fringed semi-double petals. The tuffet of frilly petals surrounds a sunny yellow center. Sturdy stems and prolonged vase life make it great cut flower.  Shasta Daisies are cheerful summer flowers that combine easily with their neighbors. Whatever the color combination – put a white daisy between them and it works!

Growing and Maintenance Tips

All Leucanthemums grow best in full sun and well drained soil. It is critical to make sure they have adequate drainage in the winter so planting in raised beds will improve survival rates. Regular division is essential to maintain the vigour of all members of the Daisy family. This can be done in the spring or the fall. Regular deadheading will keep the plant neater looking and will extend blooom time.
