True to its name, this spectacular Shasta Daisy produces dazzling double blooms with cheerful golden centers. The clean, white petals grow out horizontally in two rows, forming a plush disc. Each petal is perfectly fluted, lining up like a row of white calla lilies to add sophistication and volume to the display.

'Real Neat' is a fascinating focal point wherever you grow it—as a specimen, in a container, in a cutflower arrangement, or in a flower bed. This improved selection is super-floriferous and long-blooming. The flowers can last 2 weeks or more in the vase, offering you a long season of beautiful arrangements.

The bloom season begins in late spring in most climates, continues through summer, and even trickles into autumn if you deadhead the flowers to encourage new blooms. That's an incredible span for any plant, and much longer than most Shastas. Butterflies pay homage to the blooms all summer, adding further bright color to 'Real Neat's brilliant white display.

This UK introduction was bred to have a tight, strongly upright habit, a lovely double flower form, and improved disease resistance. The exceptionally strong stems hold the 16-to-18-inch flowers proudly, holding their form beautifully in the vase.

Healthy and far more disease-resistant than older varieties, this perennial asks little more than direct sun (or just a bit of shade) and fertile, well-drained garden soil to thrive and multiply over time in the garden. And since 'Real Neat' tends to be avoided by deer, it will live on to beautify your garden year after year. Deadheading is recommended to encourage rebloom. 'Real Neat' is hardy to -20 degrees Fahrenheit.

Neat little compact plant. Nice addition to Shasta's already planted.

Odd smell

Live on the Oregon coast so the strong stems are great in the wind. Flowers are beautiful but they do have kind of an unpleasant odor. I'm going to plant them away from the house so they will look beautiful.

A Tradition of Distinction

Wayside Difference Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market. The Wayside collection of new and exclusive plant products is so preeminent that the catalog has long been lauded in the industry and is even used as a reference work in horticultural schools.
