Leucanthemum x superbum
Until recently, the species discussed here—including Shasta daisy, which is arguably the most well-known chrysanthemum—were classed as Chrysanthemum species. All bear the beautiful white summer daisies that are cottage-garden essentials.Leucanthemum x superbum
Grows to 2–4 ft. tall, 2 ft. wide. Original plant (bred by Luther Burbank) with its coarse, leathery leaves and gold-centered, 2–4-in.-wide white flowers has been largely superseded by longer blooming varieties with larger, better-formed flowers. Available in single, double, quilled, and shaggy-flowered forms. All are white, but some show a touch of yellow. All bloom in summer; some start in late spring and continue into fall. All are splendid in borders and as cut flowers. Shasta daisies are easy to grow from seed. Catalogs offer many strains, including dwarf forms that reach only 10–15 in. high.
