Part of the You Can Learn Landscaping and Gardening series.

The Shasta Daisy produces many beautiful flowers with white petals and that distinctive bright yellow center. Plant the daisy in full sun, though in hot areas it could stand a little shade.

Water the Shasta Daisy during dry times, otherwise it is a hardy plant and pleasing to the eyes. They grow from 1 to 3 feet tall and are 6 to 18 inches wide.

Use the taller variety of the daisy for the back of the garden to provide height. Pinch to increase the number of branches. When the flowers die back then deadhead to produce new flowers. The plant has a blooming season from June to September.

For the best care cut down the plant in the fall, then in the colder climates like Chicago, mulch with straw to protect it from the long cold winters. The daisy can be divided every 2 to 3 years. It is best divided in early spring.
