Details

Shasta daisies are classic perennials that produce large, single, long lasting, pure white flowers that attract butterflies. These prolific bloomers put on a show from early summer through early fall. They are excellent for perennial borders and containers, and are resistant to heat, drought, and humidity. Shasta Daisies make great cut flowers, brightening up any room they are placed in. They are also popular in floral bouquets. Shasta daisies are perfect, low maintenance perennials for naturalizing and filling in bare spots in the landscape. Luther Burbank introduced the Shasta daisy in 1901.
