Big, bold blooms! The Alaska Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum X superbum 'Alaska') is a long-lived, sun-loving perennial with frilly white petals surrounding a cheery, yellow center. This Daisy is a hardy perennial that grows in neat clumps of gorgeous deep green leaves! Living large, these blooms rise to the occasion on long stems full of fringy longer petals than other Daisy varieties!

The flowers begin to appear in late spring and continue on for several months. With just a bit of meditative deadheading every week, you'll keep those big blooms coming back for more! These are cheerful flowers for all levels of gardener, so why not give the gift of hope and cheer with an easy-care perennial that is sure to leave an impression?

The Alaska Shasta Daisy is a good cut flower, and it is suitable for dried flowers too. The plants serve as butterfly nectar source to attract butterflies, and it has plenty of pollen for the bees and other beneficial insects! With a name like Alaska, you just know this variety is exceptionally cold-hardy! Thriving down to USDA zones 4 and up to zone 9 beautifully!

Planting and Application:

#ProPlantTips for Care:

This Shasta Daisy is easy to grow in average, well-drained soils in full sun. Good drainage is essential for this plant, and Daisies rot in soggy winter soil. Water your Shasta Daisy plants weekly when rainfall is less than an inch, and remove faded flower heads to encourage more blooms. Prune the clumps back in late fall when the foliage yellows. Daisy clumps can be divided every few years to promote better growth and vigor.

  • Full Sun For The Strongest Growth
  • Moderate Regular Moisture & Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Dislikes Soggy Winter Soil
  • Any Type of Well-Drained Organic Soil
  • Deadhead For Rebloom & Prune Late Autumn
