A delightful variety of Shasta Daisy bred in Germany. It produces a myriad of unique, large white daisy flowers that have petals that are quilled and feathery. This gives a wonderfully frilled look to the blooms. A strong, long lived perennial that requires little care and will provide masses of flowers during the summer. It is a compact grower that fits into a border perfectly and makes an ideal long lasting cut flower. Indispensable for its long display.
Prompt removal of spent flowers with encourage more blooms.

I ordered these one or two years ago. Last summer I had one flower but this year they have grown a lot and I have many blooms forming. I am very happy with this plant.
No sunny border would seem complete without the familiar presence of shasta daisies. This is a unique strain, otherwise known as the Leucanthemum Crazy Daisy, featuring flowers with very finely-cut or fringed petals surrounding a golden center. The supporting foliage is a deep green. Crazy Shasta Daisies are also an excellent choice for planting in tubs or mixed containers. These flowers are ideal for cutting or for floral arrangements. The maintenance for shasta daisies is very easy and an ideal choice of flower for the beginning gardener. The white shasta daisies grow well in full sun or areas with partial shade. The soil quality can vary, as the flowers grow well in normal soil or a sandy or clay mix. They will also grow in soil with a wide pH and average moisture. The Crazy Shasta Daisies typically have a medium growth rate. The blooming season for the white shasta daisies runs from early summer to early fall. It is recommended that gardeners divide plants in the spring every 2 to 3 years to maintain vigor and appearance. Removing any faded flowers at regular intervals will greatly increase the blooming time. The Crazy Shasta Daisies are very attractive to butterflies while also resistant to rabbits. These flowers are a beautiful addition to any garden or flowering container.
