This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately-fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy


    Magnificent, semi-double white daisies, the size of small saucers are held high on sturdy upright stems from July to August. Each flower has long, slender petals arranged around a golden central disc and the leaves are dark green. This lovely shasta daisy is very free-flowering and makes a stunning show planted in bold drifts in a sunny border. It combines well with any yellow Achillea or Hemerocallis, and is a pretty contrast to Echinops 'Veitch's Blue' to give a meadow-like feel to the summer border. It makes a good cut flower, too.

  • Garden care: Protect young plants from slugs and snails. Cut the flowered stems back to ground level in autumn. Divide congested colonies in early spring or autumn.
