Dwarf Shasta Daisies- 'Snowcap' now ready for sale

These are great little daisies that don't set seed so they keep blooming for about 8 weeks in the middle of the summer. Their only real care requirement is division every 3-4 years to keep the clumps healthy and spread out. They are just 10" tall in our garden!

An outstanding cultivar! Pure white, 2-3in single flowers are produced in abundance atop bushy mounds of foliage. 'Snowcap' has sturdy, uniform habit. Due to its compact nature, it tolerates the weather (wind, rain, etc.) better than other Shastas.

'Snowcap' was introduced in the United States by Wayside Gardens in conjunction with English plantsman, Alan Bloom.

Shasta Daisies are all-time favorites for the perennial border. The cheery flowers begin to appear in late spring and continue on for several months if faithfully deadheaded. Shastas mix so effortlessly with other perennials that no garden should be without them!
