A favorite cutflower, Becky stands tall among Shastas! And not just because of its long, extra-sturdy stems! Bigger, brighter and more durable than others, it lightens up a garden or any room where displayed in a container or vase.

A vigorous bloomer on extra-sturdy stems, capable of staving off heat and humidity, Becky blooms from midsummer into fall.

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 better than other daisies in particularly hot and humid climates, the 40-inch tall and wide plant sets a mass of airy foliage from which dozens upon dozens of flowering stems arise.

Don't worry about cutting the flowers for vases. New buds quickly pop up as replacements. If not cut, the blooms should be deadheaded to continue the new buds setting quickly.

Though it thrives in the sun, Becky tolerates partial shade in warm, southern parts of the country. 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.

Texas Summer heat

I put these daisies in full Texas sun and they were struggling so I moved them to morning sun and evening shade and they did great!

They're In Full Bloom!

Last winter was nasty and it managed to kill my well established Shasta Daisy Becky. :-( Parkseed put them on sale @$5.00/plant and that was just tooooooo much of a temptation for me. I love Daisies! They arrived a bit bedraggled. (How would you like to spent several days locked up in a box? I trimmed the damaged leaves off and each plant got it's own private tub. They started blooming last week and they are loaded with buds and flowers! Yesterday I topped of each tub off with wood chip mulch ahead of the anticipated extreme hot spell and gave them a big drink. Love those Daisies! I always get strong plants and good seeds from Parkseed. I highly recommend Parkseed and those Alaskan Shasta Daisies...Becky!

Customer service is helpful
