The Story

The wild daisies you see growing along the roadsides is the weedy European import called the Oxeye Daisy. While it’s great for making daisy chains, it isn’t a great garden plant. In the 1890s, legendary plant breeder Luther Burbank set out to make it a better garden plant. He hybridized the Oxeye Daisy with two other European daisies and a Japanese daisy for good measure. Burbank worked in California and named his introduction after Mt. Shasta in the northern part ofthat state. Snowcap Shasta Daisy is a selection that was developed by famous British gardener Alan Bloom in the 1980s.

The Details

While Snowcap Shasta Daisy stems are short, they’re just long enough to make for good cutting material. You’ll be able to have pretty bouquets for the table when summer arrives. Cutting Snowcap flowers also encourages new buds to form, ensuring that you’ll have a long-lasting display.

How to Grow

Snowcap Shasta Daisy likes to be in full sun, though it will tolerate very light shade. It appreciates regular water, but it needs freely draining soil, especially in winter, when it is vulnerable to rotting in saturated ground. Cut the flower stems down in fall if you find them unsightly; otherwise, wait until spring to do so. The foliage will remain evergreen in mild climates. Dig up and divide clumps every two or three years to keep plants growing vigorously. Snowcap Shasta Daisy responds favorably to an annual spring dose of Bower & Branch Elements™ Fertilizer, too.
