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) is packed full of flower power. There are so many blooms - you can't even see the foliage! It's not only early-blooming, but it is reliably reblooming as well, so you can enjoy the playful flowers early and often.
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 season: Early summer to fall 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.
We’ve had a horrible summer in Texas - 98 today (Sept 22), so things have had a tough time, especially new plants. These have held their own and I look forward to what next year will bring. They seem to be leafing out at the base so I’m encouraged by that. Fingers crossed.
Purchased over a month ago. Starting to bud now. I cannot wait to see them perform next year
I’m so happy with my plants! I will be ordering more soon!
these plants 'took' to being transplanted like nothing I've seen before....immediately started growing and reblooming
