Shasta Daisy

Shasta Daisy 'Snowcap' is one of those classics that have stood the test of time and remained popular. The pure white single flowers are produced in abundance atop bushy mounds of foliage. 'Snowcap' has a sturdy uniform habit and holds up well to wind and rain. This perennial has a long bloom time and' if deadheaded regularly will bloom for several months. 

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.
