Planting

Shasta daisies (Leucanthemum ‘Wirral Supreme’) grow and thrive very well in a spot with sun or partial shade. Prepare a large hole in loose, nutritious soil. Plant the shasta daisy at the correct depth in the hole, which means with the top planted just below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting your shasta daisies. The water must be able to drain effectively, especially in winter. Add sharp sand to heavy soil before planting in order to allow rainwater to drain more easily. Shasta daisies grow best in direct sunlight or partial shade.

Shasta daisies in borders

The large double flowers of the shasta daisy (Leucanthemum ‘Wirral Supreme’) really stand out in a border. Combine them in flower beds and borders with Sidalcea Oregana ‘Partygirl’ and Acanthus mollis. Shasta daisies are also especially attractive when planted in large groups. Shasta daisies ‘Wirral Supreme’ are also perfect for helping to fill a boxwood hedge!

Care

Shasta daisies (‘Wirral Supreme’) are easy to grow and require minimal maintenance. This winter-hardy perennial can remain planted in the same place for many years on end. Promote flowering by removing flowers after blooming.

Shasta daisies in the winter

Before the winter, the stems of the Shasta daisy (Leucanthemum ‘Wirral Supreme’) die aboveground. Cover the plant with a layer of fallen leaves in the winter. Remove all leaves in spring and add a bit of fertiliser. New shoots will develop quickly above the ground from this perennial.

Extra

These large-flowered, double shasta daisies fall under the Leucanthemum Superbum group. Shasta daisies also look lovely in a bouquet and will last very long as a cut flower. Pluck the flowers early in the morning. Remove the lowermost leaf and place the stems directly in a bucket of lukewarm water with cut flower additives.
