Plant Information

This new Shasta Daisy flaunts two full rows of broad snow white petals and a center that brings new interest to the group. Its butter yellow at the very center, surrounded with fluffy white, then the wide white petals. This ones a great example of how a hybridizer can take a classic, much-loved flower and make it even more beautiful. This one will turn all heads. And imagine the cutflower arrangements!

The Shasta Daisies are great plants, hybridized from a European wildflower. They're not invasive like our common daisy, and usually have larger flowers. Whats more, the flowers are classic white, and look great both in more formal perennial displays and in informal wildflower gardens.

In recent years, the hybridizers have worked on this species, creating various flower forms from doubles to all sorts of variations on the original.

      Comments about American Meadows Shasta Daisy Aglaia:

      I thought I'd try this plant this year because I loved the fact that it was a double. It grew pretty fast but only had one flower on top. It seemed to take the heat and humidity well and almost drought conditions at times. I'm hoping for a better show next year.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
