Crazy Daisy

Crazy Daisy

Leucanthemum x superbum We’re crazy for this daisy because its quilled petals are unlike any other in the Shasta class. Almost all of the 2½–3" creamy white blossoms are fully double and reminded us of dahlias. Bloomed the second year for Donna Dyrek starting on July 6 and put on a good show for nearly a month. The later blossoms were less doubled, showing the small yellow centers more. Required no protection to overwinter in central Maine, but mulching is recommended for colder areas. 24–28" tall. Need a cold period and long days to initiate bloom. Perennial, Zones 4-10. ~900 seeds/g.

Additional Information

Shasta Daisy

Leucanthemum means ‘white flower’ and the daisy, with its white petals and yellow centers, is a flower almost everyone can name. Provides great cuts and can serve as a long-lasting low-maintenance backbone in a perennial bed or border. The first man-made flower, developed by the legendary Luther Burbank from one Japanese and three European daisies. It took him 17 years.

Culture: Start indoors in warm soil 6–8 weeks before setting out in a well-drained location in full sun. Pinch back in late spring for bushier sturdier plants.
