Shasta Daisy Chrysanthemum Maximum is a hardy perennial native to Europe, and this plant has been naturalized all over the world. Shasta Daisy seeds can be started directly outdoors in spring or fall, and this Chrysanthemum features glossy, dark-green foliage with strong, single erect flower stems and produces large, 3-6 inches across, daisy-like, snow white, petaled flowers with golden yellow centers. Shasta Daisy starts to bloom in early summer and blooms over a long period until fall, attracting bees, butterflies, and birds.
Shasta Daisy is a perfect perennial garden flower for mass planting, flower borders and beds, cottage and wildflower gardens. Chrysanthemum Maximum seeds germinate in 2-3 weeks, and once established Shasta Daisy forms dense colonies thriving in full sun and almost any soil and tolerating some partial shade. Shasta Daisy is dear resistant and ideal as a cut flower, lasting up to 10 days in floral arrangements.
