Easy, always fresh, and always eye-catching, shasta daisies are a long-time favorite. All cultivars produce white daisy flowers in various degrees of doubleness and size. The sturdy stems and long vase life make the flowers unbeatable for cutting. Shasta daisies thrive in well-drained, not overly rich soil. Taller sorts may need staking. Once planted, care of shasta daisies is minimal, care includes deadheading the flowers occasionally to encourage heavier blooms and a more abundant show. Cut flowers are also long-lasting and will encourage more profuse blooming on plants remaining in the ground.
