Magnificent, semi-double white daisies, the size of small saucers are held high on sturdy upright stems from July to August. Each flower has long, slender petals arranged around a golden central disc and the leaves are dark green. This lovely shasta daisy is very free-flowering and makes a stunning show planted in bold drifts in a sunny border. It combines well with any yellow Achillea or Hemerocallis, and is a pretty contrast to Echinops 'Veitch's Blue' to give a meadow-like feel to the summer border. It makes a good cut flower, too.
- Garden care: Protect young plants from slugs and snails. Cut the flowered stems back to ground level in autumn. Divide congested colonies in early spring or autumn.
