Shasta Daisy 'Snow Lady' Overview

Leucanthemum × superbum 'Snow Lady' - commonly known as a Shasta Daisy - is a fast-growing, compact, dwarf perennial that produces large, white, yellow-eyed, daisy-like flowers in summer and autumn. Its leaves provide a dark green contrast. Often seen in cottage-style borders and wildlife meadows, it also makes a good cut flower. Previously known as Chrysanthemum maximum 'Snow Lady', this plant is frequently treated as a summer bedding annual and included in patio containers or added to the front of borders for its long-lasting display. This cultivar has earned a coveted 'RHS Award of Garden Merit' and is good for attracting pollinating wildlife to your garden. 'Snow Lady' is a strong grower and low maintenance, but needs regular deadheading to produce maximum flowering. It is happy in sun or partial shade but needs a sheltered location and moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil.
