Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

DescriptionEven though it's compact, Amazing Daisies® Daisy May® Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum superbum) from Proven Winners is packed full of flower power.

Older daisy varieties can get knocked over under adverse weather conditions. The strong stems of Daisy May® offer just the right support to keep the daisy flowers facing upright for an impressive performance. You're bound to love these flowers, and butterflies and bees will too!DetailsBotanical name:Leucanthemum superbum 'Daisy Duke' Patent #: USPP 21,914 Common name: Shasta daisy Zone: 5 - 9 Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) Height x width: 18-24" tall x 10-14" wide Flower color: White Foliage color: Green Bloom time: Early summer to fall Features: Proven winners, heat tolerant Uses: Border, containers, cottage gardening, massing, naturalizing, pollinator gardens, specimen How To GrowSoil: Average, dry to medium, well-draining soils. Good soil drainage is essential. Wet soils in winter can be fatal. Light: Does well in full sun (> 6 hours sun). Tolerates some light shade, particularly in hot summer climates or when plants are grown in dry soils. Water: Dry to medium - water regularly until established. Spacing: 14 inches Fertilizing: Fertilizer can be applied in spring if desired, but it usually isn't necessary. Winterizing: No special care is needed. May leave spent blooms on plants over winter to reseed and provide interest to birds in the winter garden. Clean up spent foliage in early spring as plants emerge. Maintenance & pruning: Remove spent flower heads, and trim back stems to about 12" after flowering to encourage reblooming. Center of clumps will weaken, so divide clumps as needed (every 2-3 years) to maintain vigor.

Plants arrived in very good condition, and grew very fast. I just love the beauty of the Daisy May plants.
Plants arrived with buds ready to blume. As soon as they got settled in, they began blumeing. Beautiful daisy flowers. Great addition to my garden. Been very pleased with all my purchases from Great Garden Plants. Thanks for the care you show!
They are going good. Can't wait to see them open, which is about to happen with the one plant. The other has buds but not yet ready to open. I'm pleased, plants arrived in great condition.
So well packaged and plants started blooming a week after I got them in the ground. Even after some deer nibbles
Simple and Lovely!
Daisies have been one of my favorite flowers since childhood. I ordered some of these last year and they were so pretty I had to have more. Got them a little past mid April and it is mid mid May now and they are starting to bloom. Can't go wrong with Great Garden plants!
