Description
This Shasta hybrid tries to improve on the classic, Alaska by widening each petal a bit, and throwing large, perfect white daisies, growing 2 to 3 tall. This ones perfect for cutting.

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 Becky:

        I ordered this Shasta Daisy in early June, potted it on a rooftop, and it immediately began rapid growth. By the end of June the blooms were out, and it is still blooming. After multiple attempts to grow daisies on my balcony and rooftop, these are the first white daisies that have succeeded. I thought their bloom time would be shorter, but they are still churning out blossoms.

          Comments about American Meadows Shasta Daisy Becky:

          My husband gave me a Becky Shasta Daisy bush after I had a miscarriage in 2003. I planted it in a corner of the yard and with very little experience, it thrived while I I did was look at it. Not only did it thrive, it expanded all over the place. My neighbor took some roots and it thrived in different soil. We lost our home and I came back during winter and dug up three roots. I covered it in Miracle Grow and it grew in hard clay soil. It overtook an entire bed with again, very little tending. I Have done everything wrong to this poor plant and it's never failed. Eleven years later, it's still absolutely beautiful. I love daisies and I adore this plant! I have three beds in my yard, and three different homes now.

              When these came in the mail, they looked very small and I admit that I did not expect much, certainly not flowers this year. 2 month later all are fully grown and blooming beautifully.

              small but healthy starter plants. Should take nicely and add some late season color in my Perennial bed!
