I planted these about three years ago, and this year they have really shined in the garden. I planted more this year with Moonshine Yarrow and Leprechaun Columbine. The green and pale yellow combination really brightens up dull spots. Full sun.

I'm questioning the height on your data sheet. It says the Banana Cream Shasta Daisy is 24-36 inches, but the Dutch Gardens catalog says 15-18 inches. I'm looking for plants to replace Old Court Variety Shasta Daisies that are too tall and blocking a view. So I am looking for something shorter than about 20 inches.

For me this plant has proved very disappointing over the two growing seasons it has been in the ground - sparse flowering, nice yellow coloring that quickly faded to dirty white. I am giving it one more year and if performance does not improve to the compost pile with it!

When this beautiful plant started showing up in catalogs, I was skeptical about the prospect of a yellow shasta daisy. But it is yellow and it is beautiful. Supposed to fade to a lighter color as it matures. Mine is planted in part shade, moist area.
