    • I am a little surprised these only have 3 stars. I live in Indiana zone 6- I initially planted 2 in my flowerbed and my goodness, such a wonderful perennial! We just moved and I dug up one of them (3 year old plant now) and it transplanted very well. I just planted 2 more this spring. After initial bloom if you cut it back you will get additional blooms all the way through November. Very beautiful plant and very easy to grow.

    • Terrific perennial for zone 8b Sidney BC Canada. Wish I could show you a pic but it has grown considerably since last year (it’s first year) and the show of blooms is awesome this summer. Mine have slightly exceeded height expectation at just shy of 3’ and they do love good drainage but also lots of water. Here, they need support as the breeze from the ocean dictates that. Lovely cut flower too - strong stems.

    • I purchased one plant from Walmart last summer. I am in Zone 4 and it has come back beautifully. Hoping to find more of these for sale this year, but no luck.

    • I planted it last year in sunny spot. It didn't survive the winter. All my other perennials in this spot came out beautifully. Location 6b in Ohio.

    • I planted two of these in the spring in my west facing garden bed (zone 5). They did ok during the summer but did not come back the following spring. Very disappointing.

    • What is going on with this plant in Zone 7a??? I bought 3 of these last year and they are beautiful, however all 3 died over the winter!

    • I purchased several of these in early Fall. Planted them in plenty of time to overwinter in my Zone 7 in multiple sunny locations in my garden. Daydreamed about a beautiful mass of Banana Creme Daisy bliss come Springtime. To my surprise none of them returned. Major disappointment.

    • I planted 10 of these this spring and I absolutely love them. Most of them have been blooming non-stop for the past month and they are still covered with new buds so I expect them to continue for a few more weeks. I took one star off, though, because, in my zone 7a (Mid-Atlantic) at least, they need protection from the afternoon heat, which I was not expecting from a shasta daisy. I planted several of them in a place where they got sun all afternoon and they absolutely fried, despite regular watering. I moved them to a spot that gets shade from 2-4pm and they're much happier now. However, I've noticed that the ones that suffered the heat stress have stopped blooming, whereas the ones that got that protection from the beginning are still going strong. I suspect that they'll all do great next year, though.

    • I put 5 of these in my new garden bed and none of them came back. I planted them in September which was plenty of time for them to settle in. Disappointed.
