Shasta daisy Interesting Notes

The Perennial Plant Association's 2003 Perennial Plant of the Year™

This heat tolerant selection of shasta (pronounced shaster below the Mason-Dixon line) daisy has been passed along through southern gardens for years before it acquired the name of Decatur, Georgia landscape designer Becky Stewart. The glossy dark green rosettes rise to 36" tall in spring, and are topped with large white daisies in early summer (June and July). C. 'Becky' prefers a well-drained, sunny site for best results. - Plant Delights Nursery

'Becky' is one of the best forms I have grown and is particularly good in the heat of the south. They stand upright, even after flowering and a hard rain, and flower for up to 8 weeks if the large, white flowers are deadheaded. - Allan Armitage

Leucanthemum × superbum 'Becky' Growing and Maintenance Tips
