'Snowcap' Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum) Description
Shasta Snowcap is a longtime favorite daisy selected especially for its compact habit and big, beautiful summer-long single white daisies with yellow centers.
Daisies grown from seed can vary in height, but Snowcap is a special selection vegetative propagation which means you'll have consistent, uniform height & habit in your garden.
Shasta Snowcap grows up to 14" tall which snuggles into smaller gardens just fine. It is magnificent in a mass planting.
Once more, you'll enjoy the weather proof habit of strong, resilient stems that stay upright, while seedling forms often get knocked down during a harsh rain.

Pair Shasta Snowcap with colorful coneflowers, drought-proof sedums, or flowering shrubs

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.
ReviewsWrite a reviewGreat Packaging!Lucetta J. | Sep 19, 2018Just wanted to let you know that the Shasta Daisy Snowcaps arrived today. So nice to see how carefully they were packaged. They arrived in great shape, were all still damp, and I'm waiting the recommended 48 hours before planting them where they will be in direct sunlight. THANK YOU!!
