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.
Amazing Daisies® Daisy May® Shasta Daisy Leucanthemum superbum
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
FeaturesPeople 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.

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!!Kevin Everhart, Ohio, United States, 4 years ago
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 plant....love the shortness instead of the tall daisies!Lynn Sims, Texas, United States, 4 years ago
