Goldfinch Shasta Daisy

Availability: Out of stock

Frills and gold, the Goldfinch Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum x ‘Goldfinch’) is a butter-yellow petalled Daisy with the classic bright yellow eye! But Goldfinch has a semi-double layer of petals in varying sizes for a fine-textured, ornate appearance! These are still fantastic landing pads for local butterflies and bees, and really add their finery to bouquets!

Goldfinch forms a neat and tidy clump of bright green foliage with delicately scalloped foliage. These are fantastic backdrops for later emerging perennials and great shade for early spring bulbs that need to hide from the hot summer sun.

Blooming all summer, Goldfinch pales to creamy ivory as the flowers mature. Shasta Daisies can tolerate a wide range of climates and conditions, and Goldfinch handles zone 5 winters up to zone 9 heat. These herbaceous perennials are deer resistant, low maintenance and generally easy to care for!

Planting and Application:

Daisies are classic cottage garden blossoms and perennial border plants. You’ll find them right at home in pollinator gardens and updated wildflower plantings, but their hardiness and low moisture needs, also mean rock gardens and that hell-strip along a sidewalk or roadway suits them just as well!

Goldfinch Shasta really impresses when planted in groupings and rows, and their carefree nature means you can plant large swaths of frilly blooms without worry or work. The tidy size and compact mounds these form make them ideal container and planter additions! Tuck into balcony gardens and patio pots for some cheerful, lacy yellow accents and filler that thrive in the sun!
