Shasta daisy Interesting Notes

An outstanding cultivar! Pure white, 2-3in single flowers are produced in abundance atop bushy mounds of foliage. 'Snowcap' has sturdy, uniform habit. Due to its compact nature, it tolerates the weather (wind, rain, etc.) better than other Shastas. 

'Snowcap' was introduced in the United States by Wayside Gardens in conjunction with English plantsman, Alan Bloom. - Walter's Gardens
