Cheerful rays of sunshine, the Madonna Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum x superbum 'Madonna') may look like a typical Daisy with their bright yellow centers and even rows of pure white petals! But this compact little gem features large blooms at a fraction of the size! Standing gracefully atop slender stems, held above a petite mound of bright green foliage and toothy leaf margins.

These container-sized shrubs are perfect for container gardening and small-space gardens alike are both fantastic locations for little Daisies! Any garden becomes a pollinator and cut-flower garden with a few of these cute flowering ornamentals! Sunny porches and patios gain cheerful little blooms, and Madonna Shasta Daisy works greatin planters, on sunny balconies and even window boxes!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Taking care of Shasta Daisies is very easy but there are a few simple rules to follow. They thrive in full sun but do appreciate some light shade in regions with hot summers. Planting in soil that drains well is essential as overwatering can be quite harmful to these Daisies, especially during the winter months. When it comes to watering, less is more. Water weekly when rainfall is less than an inch, but they will not tolerate excessive moisture or soggy soil in the winter.

Provide a good layer of mulch, at least 3-4 inches around the roots, especially in drier climates. Remove faded flower heads to encourage more blooms and 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. Rarely bothered by deer and highly pest and disease resistant, you’ll enjoy loads of cheerful blooms without much fuss!

  • Radiant in Full Sun, Appreciates Some Afternoon Shade in Hot Zones
  • Moderate Regular Moisture & Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Dislikes Soggy Winter Soil
  • Any Type of Well-Drained Organic Soil
  • Deadhead For Rebloom & Prune Late Autumn
