    Why the Snowcap Shasta Daisy?

    Nothing says sweet summer days like the Shasta Daisy. During the warm season, this perennial border staple opens its gleaming white blossoms in gardens everywhere. The cheerful blooms are a sure mood-lifter. Welcome the beloved Shasta Daisy into your own garden with Snowcap. Snowcap is a compact variety that forms a tidy mound of leathery green foliage and holds its full-size flowers on short, sturdy stems. Use it to edge a formal landscape bed, or mix it with other low-growing Spirits in a carefree cottage garden planting. Snowcap is ready to celebrate summer in any way you wish!

    The wild daisies you see growing along the roadsides is the weedy European import called the Oxeye Daisy. While it’s great for making daisy chains, it isn’t a great garden plant. In the 1890s, legendary plant breeder Luther Burbank set out to make it a better garden plant. He hybridized the Oxeye Daisy with two other European daisies and a Japanese daisy for good measure. Burbank worked in California and named his introduction after Mt. Shasta in the northern part of that state. Snowcap Shasta Daisy is a selection that was developed by famous British gardener Alan Bloom in the 1980s.

    How to use in the landscape?

    While Snowcap Shasta Daisy stems are short, they’re just long enough to make for good cutting material. You’ll be able to have pretty bouquets for the table when summer arrives. Cutting Snowcap flowers also encourages new buds to form, ensuring that you’ll have a long-lasting display.

    How To Plant

    Snowcap Shasta Daisy likes to be in full sun, though it will tolerate very light shade. It appreciates regular water, but it needs freely draining soil, especially in winter, when it is vulnerable to rotting in saturated ground. Cut the flower stems down in fall if you find them unsightly; otherwise, wait until spring to do so. The foliage will remain evergreen in mild climates. Dig up and divide clumps every two or three years to keep plants growing vigorously. Snowcap Shasta Daisy responds favorably to an annual spring dose of Bower & Branch Elements™ Fertilizer, too.

    How To Water

    Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water slowly and thoroughly. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

    How To Fertilize

    Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late year. Continue this for three years to get your plant well established.

    How To Prune

    Each fall, just before winter sets in clean up the previous years foliage and compost it. Be sure your perennials are mulched well for winter protection. Two inches of an organic mulch will do the job. Consider leaving the plant debris in place through the winter and doing your clean up on the weather warms in the spring. While it doesn't make things neat and tidy, the debris provides overwintering protection for insects, their eggs and pupae including our native Viceroy butterfly.
