Feathery frilly blooms, the REALFLOR® Real Galaxy Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum x superbum 'Real Galaxy') is a lacy bloom with fine-textured slender petals that look so frilly! Pure white, highlighting the bright golden centers like luxury lashes! And what blooms these are! Not just unique in form, these blooms reach a whopping four inches across! What a display for your garden and for your upscale bouquet arrangements!

These gorgeous lacy blooms rise above a mound of gorgeous green foliage and bloom from June to July to the delight of you, your bouquets, and your pollinators! Then if you deadhead your spent blooms as soon as they've faded, you'll enjoy a fall flush of blooms! You might just see a few hummingbirds and monarch butterflies stop by on their way south for the winter!

Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 through 9, Daisies are very low-maintenance herbaceous perennials that anyone of any level can grow successfully! Forming mounds that can spread to a fantastic 30-36 inches wide, Real Galaxy grows about 12-18 inches tall. What's more, REALFLOR® Daisies are highly floriferous and have improved disease resistance!

These lacy blooming plants are perfect specimens and accents that really need to be shown off! Fill big voids in the garden with these wide-spreading perennials without worrying they'll take up all of your time! Fantastic for spilling over the tops of retaining walls, rambling through a Rock Garden, or filling banks on a hard-to-mow hillside! These frilly blooms just shine as they bask in the sunlight!

REALFLOR® Real Galaxy Shasta Daisy looks great in large containers as spillers and fillers! Grace a large half whiskey barrel with these unique blooms, fill a garden urn, or plant in a large wood planter with tall ornamental grasses and bushy perennial flowers!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Shasta Daisies are hardy perennials that have the most vigorous growth when grown in full sun but can tolerate just a touch of afternoon shade in hotter growing zones (at the cost of the number of blooms). Growing best in well-drained soil with ample organic compost added. It's recommended to water your plants 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. Clumps can be divided every few years to promote better growth and vigor.

  • Vigorous Growth in Full Sun
  • Moderate Regular Moisture & Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Dislikes Soggy Winter Soil
  • Well-Drained Organically Enriched Soil
  • Deadhead For Rebloom & Prune Late Autumn
  • Improved Disease Resistance
