Shasta Daisy Seeds

Leucanthemum x superbum

 

Shasta Daisy blooms provide great summer flowers, you’ll find it to be the perfect, low maintenance perennial for naturalizing and filling in bare spots in the landscape. First year blooming perennial that attracts butterflies and are excellant for cuttings.In the garden, perennial daisies can carry a bed all by themselves or make a great filler. Their first flush of bloom bridges the gap between tulips and irises, and they keep going strong all season. A single plant of vivid painted daisies or a clump of icy white Shastas can make the color of neighboring plants come alive. And whenever a room needs brightening with a vase of flowers, daisies are a natural choice. They make great cut flowers, lasting for a week or more. The daisy has an innocence and simplicity that makes it an immediate favorite of young and old. 

The Shasta daisy has been praised as one of Luther Burbank's most outstanding achievements. For him, the development of this classic garden flower was a true labor of love, a labor that took more than 15 years to complete.

As a child growing up in Massachusetts, Burbank had loved the wild oxeye daisies (Leucanthemum vulgare) that grew in fields throughout New England.  This hardy little European native had been introduced accidentally by the Pilgrims and was regarded by local farmers as a pesky weed. Burbank saw the wildflower as something waiting to be made more beautiful.
