    • 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.

    • I bought and planted 3 of these last spring. The middle one seemed to shrivel and die before my eyes . The other 2 thrived, even had blooms in December (zone 7a). This spring they are looking gorgeous, so robust and loaded with buds. I want more, but haven’t been able to find them at any local retailers, unlike last year.

    • I bought 3 of these last fall and planted in the landscape. I was very excited to find these in local Lowes. They didn't survive the winter. I'm in zone 6a. Very disappointed. Waste of money and energy.
