#ProPlantTips for Care:

Shasta Daisies have the most vigorous growth in the sun, so be sure to plant in full sun and in well-drained soil to keep the plant as happy and healthy as possible. Clipping off the old blooms will keep the new ones coming longer throughout the season. 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 at least a 3-4 inch layer of mulch 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.

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

Easy-care and glowing yellow blooms, these are not a plant you'll want to miss! Order your Banana Cream Shasta Daisy today from Nature Hills Nursery!
