#ProPlantTips for Care:

These upright perennials benefit from full sun for the strongest stems. Shasta Daisies are tough herbaceous perennials that have the most vigorous growth when grown in any fertile, well-drained soil with consistent moisture. Mulch well to retain moisture and insulate the roots. After that though, this hardy plant is quite drought-tolerant. Incessantly wet roots will, especially during the winter, can cause some damage.

To ensure the longest flowering time is to periodically deadhead the spent flowers. It is best to prune down the stems and foliage in late autumn after it has turned yellow. Improve vigor by dividing every few years. Not only do you get a healthier plant, but you (or a friend or neighbor) also get two healthy plants out of the deal!

  • Most Compact Growth in Full Sun
  • Moderate Regular Moisture - Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Well-Drained Organically Enriched Soil - Dislikes Soggy Winter Soil
  • Reblooms if Deadheaded - Prune Mounds in Late Autumn
  • Seldom Damaged By Deer - Easy Care & Low Maintenance

Amazing Daisies® Banana Cream Shasta Daisy will be just the sweet treat your garden has been craving! Order today!
