Why Plant Shasta Daisies (Leucanthemum)?

Our native Shasta Daisies have long been an integral part of the sunny perennial garden. They give a clean, crisp feel to the garden. These sun lovers are summer bloomers. They are drought tolerant and are rarely bothered by deer. They also will grow in the presence of walnut trees (which give off a toxin). Both hummingbirds and butterflies are attracted by Shasta Daisies. The varieties that we are offering this year differ in height, color and type of flower. With proper care, Shasta Daisies should always look attractive. After the flowers have faded, cut the stalks ENTIRELY TO THE GROUND. The plants will then bounce back and produce a nice flush of basal foliage which stays attractive almost to December. These simple beauties also make wonderful cut flowers.
