Leucanthemum superbum

Leucanthemum superbum doesn't really have a super bum, and if you don't mind, she definitely prefers to go by her nickname Shasta Daisy (no surprises there). Once you have calmed down over her name (it took me a while), you will realise that she is actually the cutest looking daisy that wants you to see her glow like she's golden.

Description

Leucanthemum superbum is a plant worth getting purely for the name, but before you go getting all immature on us superbum actually means superb in latin! This plant was created by a guy called Luther Burbank back in 1890s in northern California near a place called Mount Shasta (hence her nickname). Her lush, dark green foliage provides a perfect backdrop for her pure white petals that have a bright yellow centre. She is low maintenance and an extra cute addition to a cottage garden.

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: I'm the cutest border plant or container plant

    I grow to: 60-120cm high, 30-90cm wide 

    Where to place me: I can handle full sun in cooler parts of Australia but I prefer part shade if it gets too hot

    My features: I'm here for a good time not a long time - being a short lived perennial I will only be around for 2-3 years so make sure you stagger my plant and I will give you years of love  

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently.

  • Size
  • I am currently 10-15cm tall in a 50mm nursery pot 

  • Growing
  • Drink preferences: Once I am all grown up I can go for long periods without a water but if I am somewhere super hot you'll notice my leaves will start to wilt so give me a drink

    Planting needs: I hate having soggy feet so make sure my soil is well draining 

    Tips and tricks: Remove my dead flower heads to encourage me bloom more 

  • Delivery
