Product Description

Nothing beats the Shasta daisy for sheer flower power in the summer garden, and in fact no sunny border is complete without their bright, cheery presence. Planted in a sunny spot or even a slightly shaded position, ‘Alaska’ will flower its socks off from late spring until autumn and they're a favourite with butterflies and bees.

Leucanthemum 'Alaska' (also known as Chrysanthemum maximum) is one of the more popular varieties of the Shasta daisy, with a large, snowy white blooms up to 7.5cm (3in) across, each punctuated with a soft central yellow eye and surrounded by luxurious dark green leaves.

Growing to just 60-90cm or so, they’re less likely to need staking and their compact nature makes them perfect for a large container that can be given pride of place on your patio, decking or balcony. If you do have space available, then these daisies are Ideal planted in well drained, moist soil in a border where they can be made into a focal plant by creating deep drifts of white.

The gorgeous blooms of this clump-forming perennial fan out on top of stout stems and can be enjoyed in the garden or brought indoors as a cut flower.

Shasta daisies are easy to grow and a doddle to look after - just give them a quick tidy up in the autumn and remove any faded flowers to extend blooming.

Supplied as 3 x 7cm pots ready for planting straight out.
