#ProPlantTips for Care:

These upright perennials benefit from full sun for the strongest stems. When planted in warmer Marshmallow appreciates some partial shade in the afternoons. Shasta Daisies are tough herbaceous perennials that have the most vigorous growth when grown in any fertile, well-drained soil with consistent moisture. Mulch well to retain moisture and insulate the roots. After that though, this hardy plant is quite drought-tolerant. Incessantly wet roots will, especially during the winter, can cause some damage.

Encourage blooms returning all summer and into autumn with regular deadheading to remove spent flowers, otherwise, Shasta Daisies are incredibly low maintenance. It is best to prune down the stems and foliage in late autumn after it has turned yellow. Improve vigor by dividing every few years. Not only do you get a healthier plant, but you (or a friend or family member) also get two healthy plants out of the deal!

  • Tolerates Sun & Hot Summers
  • Moderate Regular Moisture - Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Well-Drained Organically Enriched Soil - Dislikes Soggy Winter Soil
  • Reblooms if Deadheaded - Prune Mounds in Late Autumn
  • Easy Care Plants - Deer & Rabbit Resistant
