#ProPlantTips for Care:

Shasta Daisies are tough herbaceous perennials that have the most vigorous growth when grown in full sun. Well-drained soils are best and make sure you provide regular moisture as it's establishing itself in your landscape. After, this hardy plant is quite drought-tolerant, but wet roots will, especially during the winter, will cause an early demise.

A good way to ensure the longest flowering time is to periodically deadhead the spent flowers. This lets the plant focus its energy on making new blossoms for you to enjoy. 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, you get two healthy plants out of the deal!

  • Most Vigorous 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
