Becky Shasta Daisy
The Daisy 'Shasta' Leucanthemum ‘Becky Daisy’, leucanthemum superbum, is the longest blooming daisy in the Leucanthemum family!
With bright, large, white beautiful flowers held above its dark green foliage, this plant has a height of 3’ and a spread of 18-24”. Being Perennial of the Year in 2003, one can see why.
‘Becky Daisy’ blooms from July to September, and if deadheaded, the blooming time will be extended.
This daisy should be grown in full sun, but can tolerate some afternoon shade, in well-drained soil. It will not tolerate excessive moisture or wet soil in the winter.
Water ‘Becky Daisy’ plants weekly when rainfall is less than an inch, and remove faded flower heads to encourage more blooms.
Combine ‘Becky Daisy’ with Veronica “Royal Candles”, Perovskia ‘Russian Sage’ or Scabiosa “Butterfly Blue”. It also is great for formal and informal gardens, as cut flowers, in mass plantings or in the perennial border.
This low maintenance perennial is great for first time gardeners. ‘Becky Daisy’ will easily add beauty and sunshine to any sunny spot in your garden!
