Leucanthemum x superbum 'Becky'

Shasta Daisy

Herbaceous Perennial

A cottage garden favorite, Shasta daisy is one tough, durable and easy-to-grow perennial, but that doesn't make it any less charming. Becky asks for very little: deadhead to promote rebloom and divide every several years to maintain vigor.
