Shasta daisy 'Real Glory'

Great for extending the flowering season

A very showy new form of the Shasta daisy with large blooms with white petals that open flat, gradually reflexing to display a domed centre of tiny golden petals. Flowers are freely produced over a long period in summer and are extremely long lasting. Although double they are still very attractive to bees and butterflies. Growing to 60cm (2ft) this is a taller variety for the middle of a border. A mat of dark green leaves remains through winter ready to bloom again year after year.

Where?

Plant in full sun or semi-shade in beds and borders to add summer colour amongst other perennials and shrubs.

How?

Any well-drained fertile soil. Cut back flower stems when flowers fade. Remove any dead leaves in winter. No support normally required. Lift and divide every few years to make more plants.
