Product Details

Shasta daisy is possibly the oldest hybridized American garden flower. Large, bright white flowers bloom continuously from summer to fall, making it a beautiful addition to any perennial garden. Plants are easy to grow from seed, and long-lived for years of enjoyment. The 3" blooms attract bees and butterflies, and make great cut flowers. Produce colored flowers by placing stems in a water with food coloring!
