Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum ‘Daisy Mae’)

This exceptional daisy provides masses of extra large white blooms with large golden centres that create a wow factor in any garden. They have larger buds then other Leucanthemums, are easy specimens to grow and are most effective when planted en masse.

Leucanthemum ‘Daisy Mae’ has an upright and spreading growth habit. Their excellent branching habit and the fact that they produce many side buds means a fuller plant and more flowers. Give plants about 30 cm between each other to prevent overcrowding.

“Daisy Mae” is a perennial that has single flowers on sturdy stems from late spring to early autumn, an exceptionally long flowering period! Stems can reach between 30 and 50cm in height, depending on conditions. The rich green foliage contrasts well with the stark single white flowers. Because of the upright growth and strong stems ‘Daisy Mae’ is an excellent cut flower and makes for beautiful bouquets.

While dead heading is not a necessity it will improve the plant performance and appearance, to do this cut dying flower stems off to encourage new flowers later in the season. Butterflies are attracted to the flowers and this in turn will encourage birds and other wildlife to your garden.

Leucanthemum enjoy a full sun position where it performs best in well drained soil. Water well when required but be sure to allow the soil to dry out between waterings. They just love organic fertilisers and a good mulch.

This low maintenance plant is ideal for mass planting, borders and containers. Super for lightening up areas in the garden used for night time entertaining.
