#ProPlantTips for Care:

Hardy through USDA growing zones 5 - 9, Shasta Daisies are tough perennials that have the most vigorous growth when grown in full sun. Well-drained soils are best and you'll want to make sure you're giving it medium moisture as it's establishing itself in your landscape. After that though, this hardy plant is quite drought-tolerant. Incessantly wet roots will, especially during the winter, can cause some damage.

A good way to ensure the longest flowering time is to periodically deadhead the spent flowers. This lets the plant focus its energy on making new blossoms for you to enjoy. This plant does best if pruned down in late autumn. Improve vigor by dividing every few years and you get a healthier plant and, oh wait, you get two healthier plants out of the deal! Doesn't get much better than that.

  • Full Sun
  • Moderate Regular Moisture & Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Well-Drained Organically Enriched Soil - Dislikes Soggy Winter Soil
  • Reblooms if Deadheaded - Prune Mounds in Late Autumn
  • Seldom Damaged By Deer
