Leucanthemum s. Daisy May® Description
Shasta Daisy May® leucanthemum is a showstopping sun perennial that is simply wonderful!
We honestly have never seen such petal-to-petal coverage like this before in a Shasta daisy.There are so many blooms - you can't even see the foliage! Every garden needs one!
3" wide single white flowers with golden yellow centers on mounded and compact plants at 18-24" tall that bloom earlier than other shastas.
Flowers are great for cutting & bouquets and last for up to two weeks in a vase. Daisy May® will rebloom reliably later in summer if deadheaded after its main flush of blooms. You will love these blooms and so will the butterflies!
Older daisy varieties can get knocked over under adverse weather conditions. The strong stems of Daisy May® offer just the right support needed to keep the daisy flowers facing upright for an impressive performance in the perennial garden.
Enjoy this crown pleasing favorite with Ornamental Grasses, KnockOut Roses or Flowering Shrubs.
