This beautiful daisy is a newer version of the much-loved Shasta Daisy, which blooms from late spring until cooler weather sets in. The flowers are fully double, and give you great variety: Some flowers have standard petals, just plenty of them. Others have twisted petals, still others pointed petals. The plant is a tough dependable perennial that keeps bloom from late spring until the cooler weather of fall begins.

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 Crazy Daisy:

I wish I had known ahead of time that they don't bloom the first year. It drove me crazy wondering what I'd done wrong -- the plants looked healthy, but no blooms. Now in the second year they are blooming just fine and doing well despite our drought (CALIF) conditions.

They are only about half the size of the more traditional Shasta Daisies. This is good if you need medium-low height plants to fill in and you like Shasta Daisies, but not the height. However, if you're looking for height and width, you're not gonna get it with the Crazy Daisies. They are about half the size of my other Shasta Daisies.

      Comments about American Meadows Shasta Daisy Crazy Daisy:

      I fell in love with the plant from your picture. I planted them as directed and cared for them. When they didn't bloom I called your customer service and got a very helpful man. He explained that for the first year they won't bloom because they're putting down a good root system. We talked about my concerns and he assured me I was doing it right. I can't wait for next spring and see them bloom. If you want to contact me then, I'll be glad to give you a progress report.

      Comments about American Meadows Shasta Daisy Crazy Daisy:

      Since I won't see it bloom until next spring, most don't apply. I can't wait until spring and hope it lives up to it's pictures. I appreciate the help from customer service. I was concerned that it hadn't bloomed. He assured me this was normal and that it was putting down roots. Ask me next spring.

      Comments about American Meadows Shasta Daisy Crazy Daisy:

      Ordered 6 plants for my daughter and son-in-law's anniversary. One was dead upon arrival. Two died shortly after planting, one didn't make through the season and two are alive and well! The plants appeared to be different different species. Which perhaps is why they are "Crazy Daisies."

      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).
