This shasta daisy will often flower for months on end, particularly if it is deadheaded regularly. The yellow-eyed, shaggy-looking flowers are loved by bees and will also make an excellent addition to the vase. An easy perennial to grow provided it gets plenty of sun, they make ideal additions to both herbaceous borders and naturalised planting schemes.
- Garden care:Cut the flowered stems back to ground level in autumn and divide congested clumps in early spring or late summer to keep them flowering well.
