Everyone has daydreamed of running through a field of daisies on a warm summer day at one point or another. There just doesn't seem to be a better combination than summer and daisies. Luckily, bringing that feeling to your garden as never been easier, with the Amazing Daisies® Daisy May® Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum x superbum 'Daisy Duke' PP21914)!
Picture the classic daisy bouquet. Each blossom beautifully adorned with pristine white petals bursting from a center the bright and cheerful color of the sun. This is exactly the picture you'll be presented with each year as Daisy May® erupts with those stunning blooms. They're set atop strong stems that can withstand the test of weather with ease.
Once the Daisy May® covers itself in flowers, it'll continue blooming all season long if it is properly deadheaded. No matter what stage the bloom cycle is in though, it is a very pleasing plant to look at as the true green foliage stays appealingly full and doesn't fade throughout the season.
The question isn't so much what can you do with a Daisy May® in your garden, it's what can't you do! These daisies look incredible as centerpieces in rock gardens or accents in a cottage garden. They'll also do wonderfully as border plants!
Taking care of a Daisy May® can be very easy but there are a few simple rules to follow. 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. They thrive in full sun but do appreciate some light shade in regions with hot summers.
Your neighbors won't be the only ones hovering to take in the beauty of Daisy May®, butterflies will also visit in abundance! They'll love stopping by to rest on a petal and snack on the nectar. If butterflies make your heart flutter, you'll want to plant this somewhere you can marvel while sitting on the patio enjoying a summertime lemonade!
There's no reason to hike to a meadow of wildflowers to enjoy the ethereal beauty of daisies. Bring the beauty to your very own cottage garden with Amazing Daisies® Daisy May® Shasta Daisy! Order one today to complete your summertime gardening plans!
