Notes for Identification: Introduction also known as chrysanthemum maximum, shasta daisy is a robust plant which will produce flowers on 2 ½ to 3-foot tall stems. It can be maintained as a true perennial throughout its range but can only be grown as an annual in the central and southern half of florida because the summer conditions are not appropriate. Shasta forms a rounded shape with many upright stems emerging from the ground. Plants spread slowly across the garden. The oblanceolate, dark green leaves are coarsely and bluntly toothed and may reach a length of 1 foot. The large, single, daisy-like flowers are clear white with a golden center and grow to about 2 to 3 inches across. general information             origin: not native to north americauses: cut flowers; mass planting; ground cover; attracts butterfliesavailability: somewhat available, may have to go out of theregion to find the plantdescription height: 1 to 2 feetspread: 1 to 2 feetplant habit: uprightplant density: moderategrowth rate: moderate texture: mediumfoliage leaf arrangement: alternateleaf type: simpleleaf margin: serrateleaf shape: linearleaf venation: pinnateleaf type and persistence: deciduousleaf blade length: 8 to 12 inchesleaf color: greenfall color: no fall color changefall characteristic: not showyflower flower color: whiteflower characteristic: summer flowering; spring floweringfruit fruit shape: no fruitfruit length: no fruitfruit cover: no fruitfruit color: not applicablefruit characteristic: inconspicuous and not showytrunk and branches trunk/bark/branches: typically multi-trunked or clumping stemscurrent year stem/twig color: not applicablecurrent year stem/twig thickness: thickculture light requirement: plant grows in part shade/part sunsoil tolerances: acidic; loam; clay;drought tolerance: moderatesoil salt tolerances: poorplant spacing: 24 to 36 inchesother roots: not applicablewinter interest: no special winter interestoutstanding plant: plant has outstanding ornamental features and could be planted moreinvasive potential: not known to be invasivepest resistance: long-term health usually not affected by pestsuse and management the shasta daisy flowers last 4 to 6 days in a vase of water after cut from the plant.

The shasta daisy should be grown in the full sun in the northern part of its range on fertile, moist, well-drained soils. They often perform best in florida in the partial shade. Taller growing varieties can be pinched before flower buds form to keep them from becoming lanky. Provide good air circulation to avoid disease problems. There are numerous cultivars selected with various maximum heights with double and semi-double flowers. The shasta daisy is propagated by seed or division. This plant reproduces quickly. Pests and diseases the shasta daisy is occasionally bothered by leaf spots, stem rots, and leaf miners.  source: u. S.
