I bought 3 of these this spring and planted them. They're already blooming but, I was a little surprised that 2 of the 3 are not the white that they were supposed to be but a light lavendar color. Even with the lavendar color I still like them, just a little dissappointed that they arn't all white.

In my zone 5a, this plant is doing well and blooms a long time.
It is my favorite mum, keeping to a neat 14" high clump without pinching. Survived the winter without problems.
As with all my mums, the blooms extent for at least one month or more but once they stop blossoming, none of them have repeated blooms even if said to bloom from June to September. I always trim back after their peak.

Looks great when it blooms for a few days in early summer, but the blooms last a very short time and then the plant looks ragged the rest of the summer. I get very few, if any, repeat blooms even with deadheading. Not that impressive overall.

I planted Snowcap Shasta Daisy one year ago in full sun, zone 3b, clay soil. The only winter protection I used was snow cover. The plant is now a nice 18inch mound that is full of 3inch blooms and lots of buds.

I just discovered today that the neighborhood bunny rabbits like the taste of the flowers. Some of the flowers on the outside edge of the plant have been nibbled on.
