Leucanthemum superbum 'Cream Puff'

Shasta Daisy

This Shasta Daisy has the best of both worlds: lemon yellow buds that open to cream flowers and also a tight, compact habit. The large, 3-4" flowers have two rows of wide, overlapping petals. The top layer of petals curves upward at a 45 degree angle from the bottom layer of petals, creating a more formal look. Flowers completely cover the dome-shaped habit of dark green foliage. This beauty will bloom for many weeks starting in early summer, and deadheading will encourage rebloom. As an added bonus for growers, 'Cream Puff' does not require vernalization to bloom. We have observed rebloom late summer through fall with deadheading. Perfect for containers or near the front of the border.


Shasta Daisies are all-time favorites for the perennial border. The cheery flowers begin to appear in early summer and continue on for several months if faithfully deadheaded. Shastas mix so effortlessly with other perennials that no garden should be without them!

Shasta Daisy Growing and Maintenance Tips

Leucanthemums require full sun and well-drained soil to be at their best. Winter drainage is especially important; planting in raised beds will help to provide these conditions. Shastas make good perennials for Southern gardens, though partial shade is recommended in the warmest zones.
