Botanical Name - Leucanthemum 'Whoops-A-Daisy' - NEW
Common Name - Shasta Daisy
Description - Leucanthemum are commonly known as Shasta daisies and are well known in gardens of yesteryear. ‘Whoops-a-Daisy’ was the result of a planned breeding program at Walters Gardens, Inc. This new dwarf Leucanthemum is exceptionally dense, rounded ball-shaped mound of dark green foliage that becomes completely blanketed in large 7.5-14cm white flowers with gold centers during summer to autumn. It has better flower coverage and a more uniform habit and the individual flowers have a fuller, fluffier appearance. They are extensively used in mixed borders and as cut flowers. Plants need to be planted in a full sun position and are heat tolerant.
Flower Time - Summer and Autumn.
Size - Grows to 40cm high x 50cm wide.
Use -As a swathe across the garden or grown in containers to move around as desired. Flowers last well picked for table floral decorations. Try growing this cute perennial in containers or in the landscape where it will shine brightly near the front of the border. Plants attract butterflies to your garden.
Position - Full sun
Maintenance - Easy care once established. Remove spent flowers to prolong flowering.
