Gardeners' Notes:

I purchased "Snow Lady" in a a 4" pot last year from a local nursery. It bloomed in midsummer for a couple weeks, then again in early September. The plant never seemed to spread out more than 8" or so and seemed to die off at the end of September. It has popped up again this spring, and it looks like a second one is coming up right next to it! Hoping for a longer bloom period this year and maybe a little more spread.

I planted these in the summer of 2004. I purchased them from our local garden center. They came up this late spring and were quite a treat. Many flowers that make beautiful cut flowers. I may be getting a second flowering as lots of new leaves are forming. (almost August!). This summer they are compact but look like they may start to spread. I like them because they are low growing.

My mother got a couple of plants from a friend that lived next door. Both live in Redding (Northern) California. The plants seemed healthy and bloomed nicely once a year in late spring and appeared to die off each winter (they come back on their own in force next spring). The plant likes to spred out and take over so mom separated a bunch off for my Grandma's garden in San Clemente (Southern) California. In my grandma's garden, the Shasta Daisy seems almost like a different plant. The blooms come three times (if you cut the dead heads off) a year. Also the plant is taller, stronger looking and the blooms are almost twice as big. Mom thinks it is because Redding gets so hot in the summer. Shasta Daisys love water. In So Cal we cut them to the ground at the end of the last blooming at the beginning of fall. I wish I had a digital camera to show you the difference.
