Dwarf Shasta Daisy

Dwarf Shasta Daisy
Leucanthemum x superbum 'Darling'
(lew-KANTH-ih-mum) (soo-PER-bum)

This is a petite Shasta Daisy that appears more dwarf than ‘Snowcap’. The flowers are 2 to 3 inches wide and that fits the stature of the plant. They look quite good when there is a carpet of flowers that are only about 8 inches tall. ‘Darling’ is suitable for the front of the border and seemed to bloom most of the summer with deadheading.

This week, with the big American holiday on Thursday, is going to be busy. There are probably going to be a few more Daisy pictures here. Looking back at some of the photos that I took over the summer the daisies seemed to do very well.
