My favorite Shasta Daisy, Crazy Daisy. I love the frilly, delicate look of this plant! I bought 1 from Bluestone Nurseries in Madison, Ohio and love it! They have already tripled from last year and I will post pictures when they bloom. They are planted in heavy clay in full sun. They grow about 11/2 feet tall. They border my stepping stones in my garden. The leaves emerged a month ago and it is getting ready to bloom now - June 17, 2010.
