Leucanthemum x superbum 'Banana Cream'

Shasta Daisy

Plant Type: Perennial

The 4-5 inch wide flowers are lemon yellow when they open, brightening to light butter yellow and finally to creamy white as they mature. An extra row of ray petals gives the flowers a fuller appearance than truly single varieties. Since it produces flower buds at each axillary shoot, it blooms prolifically all summer long atop strong, upright stems. Compared to older cultivars, this plant has nicely compact, dark green foliage and exhibits increased disease resistance. It has proven to be a very strong grower and rapid multiplier. Try planting a few in the landscape or combination containers and youÂ’ll be rewarded with loads of blooms for fresh bouquets. Flowers last up to two weeks when cut. PROVEN WINNER.
