Noteworthy Characteristics:
This Shasta daisy cultivar is a compact, dwarf plant which typically grows on rigid stems to 12" tall. Features 2.5" diameter flower heads with the classic white rays and yellow center disks and coarsely-toothed, lance-shaped, medium green leaves. Stems do not require staking. Blooms most of the summer. Excellent and long-lasting fresh cut flower. Formerly included in the genus Chrysanthemum. This cultivar is a 1991 All-America award winner.
No serious insect or disease problems. Some susceptibility to verticillium wilt, leaf spots and stem rots. Aphids, mites and leaf miners are occasional visitors.
Shasta daisies are a mainstay of the perennial border or cutting garden and provide long-lasting summer and early fall bloom. This dwarf is particularly suitable for border fronts where it will provide profuse bloom for up to three months.
