Leucanthemum 'Becky' Daisy

Description

The best Shasta for big, sturdy blooms (and plenty of 'em!)

Perennial Plant of the Year Award 2003

A favorite cut flower, Leucanthemum 'Becky' Daisy stands tall among Shastas. And not just because of its long, extra sturdy stems. Bigger, brighter and more durable than others, Leucanthemum 'Becky' Daisy 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, Leucanthemum 'Becky' Daisy 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 have a bold golden eye. Performing better than other daisies, particularly in 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, Leucanthemum 'Becky' Daisy tolerates partial shade in warm, southern parts of the country. This Shasta daisy 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 Leucanthemum 'Becky' Daisy about 3 feet apart and get your vases ready.
