Leucanthemum superbum 'Whoops-a-Daisy'
This Shasta Daisy forms a dense, rounded, ball-shaped mound that becomes completely blanketed in white flowers with gold centers. Better flower coverage and uniform habit compared to ‘Snowcap.’ White flowers with yellow centers appear between June and July. PPAF.
Shasta Daisies (formerly Chrysanthemum) are one of the standards in the perennial world with their familiar, showy flowers and ease of cultivation. They all need good drainage, especially in winter, and division every two to three years.
