Plant Description

This Shasta Daisy comes to us from our friend Kit Donavan, a plant her mother Kae Ottis has grown in Okarche, OK since the early 1950?s. Kit tells us that at bloom time, her mother would fill the entire house with milk glass vases stuffed with their cheerful white and yellow flowers. The Shasta Daisy originated as a hybrid plant L. lacustre x L. maximum produced by Horticulturist Luther Burbank and named for California?s Mount Shasta. Since its creation there have been numerous cultivars and selections made, many now with forgotten names. Some do well here in Oklahoma but many struggle, this one is obviously a winner. We love introducing new unheard of plants that perform well here but there will also always be a place for these heirloom tried and true plants that have proven to be Oklahoma tough for so many years.
