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.
