Shasta Daisy

This perennial clump returns in full bloom each year. The clump needs division from the center out about every four years. The center is liable to harbor unwanted insects.

Mine is a big clump and it sort of fills an empty space with some color.

Most impressive. I have only seen the white Shasta Daisy. I must look around and see if I can find the other colors.

The Estate, I'm not meaning to be picky but the flowers in your wheelbarrow, lovely as they are' are not shasta daisies. Shastas grow from a crown in the soil, and never get woody, and the leaves are quite different. Your daisies I would call marguerites but that is a general name and also probably not accurate. Shatsas are interesting perennials from mount shasta in the western USA.
