A cutflower-lover's dream come true!

If deadheaded, plants will bloom from midsummer 'til fall!
Winner of the 2003 Perennial Plant of the Year Award, Becky is everything a Shasta should be, and more. It blooms profusely, on extra-sturdy stems that know how to stand up to a little -- or a lot of! -- heat and humidity. Its season extends from midsummer right into fall, without a rest. And its giant flowers are a brighter, more beautiful white than others, making this variety stand out among all the Shastas!

These daisies measure a full 4 inches across, and are stuffed with long, slender, very eye-catching white petals and a bold golden eye. Performing well even in the South (unlike some Shastas), this 40-inch tall and wide plant sets a mass of airy foliage from which dozens upon dozens of flowering stems arise. Cut all you want for your vases -- they'll only encourage new buds to pop up all the faster! And if you don't cut the flowers, keep them promptly deadheaded to get more and more blooms where those came from!

Becky is a sun-lover, but tolerates partial shade in the south. The plant is very full and billowy, just the thing for the perennial border, bank, or bed. This plant never needs staking, and doesn't mind dry spells, unseasonable heat and humidity, or even the occasional severe winter. Evergreen in the south, it bounces back from tough winters beautifully farther north.

Space plants about 3 feet apart and get your vases ready! Zones 5-9.
