Plant Patent Applied For. CPBRAF. As durable as it is spectacular, 'Banana Cream' is a super-floriferous, long-blooming Shasta Daisy with flowers that begin bright lemon-yellow before maturing through all shades of pastel into ivory cream! The delightful?flowers last 2 weeks or more in the vase, assuring you of months of beautiful indoor arrangements!
Measuring 4 inches across, these blooms are technically semi-double with?an extra layer of petals beneath the first adding depth and?volume to the display. The long, slender, very crowded petals surround a sunny,?golden-orange center on thick, sturdy stems. Blooming includes the side-shoots, which?bud heavily if the first blooms of the season are cut or deadheaded promptly.
The bloom season begins in late spring in most climates, continuing through summer, and?into autumn ?an incredible span, much longer than most Shastas! Butterflies?visit 'Banana Cream' throughout it all, adding further bright color to the display.
