The 'Becky' Shasta Daisy, renowned for its vigorous blooming prowess, stands resilient against the sweltering challenges of heat and humidity, unfurling its beauty from the warm midsummer days into the crispness of fall.

Sporting large, 4-inch Shasta Daisy 'Becky' flowers, this variety is distinguished by striking white petals that gracefully encircle a vivid yellow center. Beyond its visual appeal, the Shasta Daisy 'Becky' distinguishes itself with exceptional adaptability, thriving in hot and humid climates where others may falter. Achieving an impressive stature of 40 inches in both height and width, it adorns the garden with a lush expanse of foliage, setting the stage for a dramatic display of blooms on resilient stems.

The care regimen for the Shasta 'Becky' Daisy is refreshingly straightforward, epitomizing low-maintenance gardening.

Moreover, diligent deadheading propels a continuous spectacle of new buds, ensuring that the garden remains a hive of floral activity.

Adaptable and sturdy, the 'Becky' Shasta Daisy thrives under the full gaze of the sun, yet graciously accepts the cooler embrace of light shade in the warmer southern locales. This variety's fullness and billowy nature make it an exemplary choice for enriching perennial borders, banks, or beds with a touch of whimsical elegance. Unfazed by dry spells, heat waves, humidity, or the rigors of severe winters, it stands as a testament to resilience and beauty, returning with vigor in regions where it remains evergreen and rebounding with grace after tough northern winters.

As you prepare your garden for the introduction of Leucanthemum x superbum 'Becky', allow ample space—about 3 feet apart—for each plant to reach its full majestic spread. Anticipate a season filled with the luminous blooms of Shasta 'Becky' Daisy, poised to transform any space into a sanctuary of light and serenity.
