Shasta Daisy Growing and Maintenance Tips

Thrives in a moist to average, well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. Dislikes winter wetness and deadheading will encourage a prolonged bloom time. Foliage holds up well in heat and humidity. Taller varieties may need staking. Dividing every 2-3 years will keep them vigorous, preventing overcrowding and increase bloom count.
