    People say I have a BIG BUD.

    Though she may look like a typical daisy at first, look again at her large, snow white flowers which blanket the plant and all the buds along each stem. Because of better branching and many side buds, this daisy blooms much longer than typical daisies do, often all summer long if deadheaded. Stronger flower power = Daisy May!

    • I am good in the flower garden but this plant died almost immediately. I wasn't over or under watering. I thought the heat might be too extreme, so I made a tent type cover for shade it from midday sun. Even the roots were dead when I dug it up today. Soil was slighly moist but not dry. Stumped by this plant. Would love suggestions.

    • Best daisy i've ever planted, only light pruning needed. It does split if it's not in direct sunlight for 10+ hours a day, so put this in a super sunny spot and you won't have a problem.

    • I am so impressed with this plant. I bought 3 Daisy May plants (there were only 3 at the nursery) and 4 of another variety of Shasta Daisy (not Proven Winners). There happened to be a heat wave (3 days at 100 degrees or above) a couple days after I planted them, and the Daisy May plants did great! No wilting whatsoever. The other variety struggled and wilted badly. I love the large blooms. Wish I had been able to get 7 of these instead of just 3.

    • This plant is amazing! I had to get 2 more because after 1 year of planting from a one gallon size pot it is almost 3 foot tall and very showy, just imagine a huge bush of daisies! Thank you Proven Winners!!

    • My only regret is I just bought one of these daisies. It was blooming when I planted it and has not stopped since...excellent, very showy the shortness instead of the tall daisies!
