LEUCANTHEMUM - Shasta Daisy
Full sun. Hard to beat for cut-flower production all summer. The more you cut, the more you get. Newer varieties for colour, height and petal characteristics but all are very delightful.
Needs full sun and plenty of water. Blooms late summer and is popular with florists. Grows up to 30 inches and flowers from the top down which is quite unusual. Divide every three years. Cut right down at end of season.
Best in part shade. Needs moisture and competes poorly with tree roots. Great with Rogersia and Astilbe. Long lived and forms beautiful large clumps over time. Long summer flowering period. Flowers reach to 48 inches.
