Description / Leucanthemum 'Snow Cap' Shasta Daisy

Leucanthemum 'Snow Cap' Shasta Daisy stands as a testament to the brilliance of selective breeding, specially chosen by us for its uniform dwarf stature and the spectacular size of its blooms. Unlike the unpredictable nature of seedlings, 'Snow Cap' offers gardeners the consistency in height and floral display that is often sought after but rarely found.

This dwarf cultivar is a marvel in the world of perennials, making the Shasta Daisy Snow Cap particularly well-suited for smaller gardens or restricted spaces. Its prolific flowering habit shines in edging or mass plantings, where the Snow Cap Shasta Daisy can truly show off its dense floral carpet without overwhelming the landscape.

The Shasta Daisy Snow Cap produces long-lasting, 4-inch flowers with striking yellow centers and pure white petals that are notably weather resistant. These blooms grace the garden in midsummer, rising above neat, mounded foliage that spans 12 to 18 inches in height. The health and vigor of the Snow Cap Shasta Daisy foliage underscore its status as one of the finest cultivars introduced in years, a masterpiece introduced by Alan Bloom of Blooms of Bressingham in the 1980s.

Thriving in well-drained soil, the Shasta Daisy 'Snow Cap' is celebrated not only for its beauty but also for its ease of cultivation. It represents the pinnacle of easy-to-grow perennials, requiring minimal maintenance to produce a profusion of blooms that will enhance any perennial border. Its introduction by Alan Bloom marked a significant contribution to gardening, bringing a piece of Bressingham's renowned horticultural innovation to gardens worldwide.

Expect a full bloom time from this exquisite variety, which reaches its peak in just 2-3 years, becoming a central feature of the garden with its snowy blooms of Bressingham heritage. Whether planted in mass for a striking visual effect or used as a delicate edging, Leucanthemum 'Snow Cap' is a versatile addition that brings elegance and brightness to any setting.

Shasta daisy flowers have a long bloom season. The white petals of some leucanthemum plants are famously named Shasta Daisy after California's snowy Mount Shasta. Learn how to care for these perennial beauties as part of your Chemical Free Garden in our Organic Care for Shasta Daisies Guide.
