Leucanthemum Seed Germination How to Sow Leucanthemum:
  • Best sown indoors at 68-70° with NO cover
  • Expect germination in 10-14 days

  • Seeds can also be sown outdoors from early spring through summer, up to two months before frost
  • If sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed

How to Grow Leucanthemum:
Transplanting: Transplant when there are at least two sets of true leaves

Soil: Best grown in a soil of neutral pH. Feed monthly with a balanced fertilizer. Indoors, rich, porous soil that is allowed to dry out between waterings

Additional Care: For continuous flower display, deadhead or harvest the flowers for cut flower use. Easy to grow, but staking of flower stalks is required on the taller varieties and dead-heading required for tidiness. Plants should be divided every 2-3 years to keep them vigorous

Appearance and Use:

Best used in perennial beds and borders in a prepared garden soil. Flowers are agreeable to cutting for fresh flower arrangements, where they will last up to 10 days. This perennial of rounded, clumping habit, growing to 1-2 feet high and wide, is a vigorous grower and floriferous producer of 3-4 inch diameter, white flowers in summer. Flowers can be single, double, daisy, and anemone. Stiff stems float the flowers well above the mound of bright green foliage
