Shasta Daisy


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

Poking around the archives on my hard drive I found some Shasta Daisy pictures from May. It was a nice stand of flowers that looked nicely cared for and not ratty like some Daisy patches. We have begun using more and more Daisies, as they are a reliable showy perennial. If we could just keep the deer off them they would be perfect. Just a classic flower.

Today’s bonus flower is a hardy geranium. This is another plant that has been getting to the head of the purchase line at the nursery. The color is outstanding (especially in groups) and with a little care can bloom almost all season.
