Plant Information

18-20” tall x 18-24” wide. Put some sunny contrast in your beds with ‘Goldfinch’ Shasta daisy! Its compact size and bright color will attract both pollinators and the visitor’s eye, and vigorous fast growth means less time waiting for that mature garden look. Shaggy, semi-double blooms are held several inches above strong green foliage and arrive in summer. They start out lemon-yellow and slowly morph to pale-cream as the season progresses, so you’ll have several shades of yellow on your plant at one time. ‘Goldfinch’ makes a great cut flower and regular deadheading can prolong the garden display. Though this hardy perennial can cope with less moisture, it does prefer regular watering in a sunny site with plenty of drainage. Consider pairing it with the spikes of red-hot poker or blazing star for a eye-catching display.

Q & A

Plant With These:

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).
