Shasta Daisy Banana Cream Description
Large, semi-double 4" butter-yellow flowers provide over 3 months of color in your garden!
This butterfly loving shasta daisy is a real crowd pleaser with large semi-double flowers that are banana yellow when they start to open and then transition to a light yellow/near white.The end result is a stunning two-tone effect.
All this on nicely compact 18" stems - a perfect scaled down version for small spaces.
What is striking is the how prolific the blooms are for a Shasta Daisy. Cut flowers still have a fresh look even after two weeks in a vase!
Older daisy varieties can get knocked over under adverse weather conditions. The strong stems of Banana Cream offer just the right support needed to keep the daisy flowers facing upright for an impressive performance in the perennial garden.

Soil: Average, dry to medium, well-drained soils. Good soil drainage is essential. Wet soils in winter can be fatal.
Light: Does well in full sun. Tolerates some light shade, particularly in hot summer climates or when plants are being grown in dry soils.
Water: Dry to medium -- Water regularly until established
Spacing: 18 - 24 inches
Fertilizing: Spring application of a timed release, or organic fertilizer
Winterizing: No special care needed. May leave spent blooms on plants over winter for reseeding, and providing 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 rebloom. Center of clumps will weaken, so divide clumps as needed (every 2-3 years) to maintain vigor.
