Grow me instead of Oxeye daisy

This is the perfect plant for the classic ‘daisy’ look! Shasta daisy is an herbaceous perennial with glossy, deep green leaves and white petaled flowers with yellow centres. It blooms all summer and looks excellent in a mixed perennial garden or as a border. Shasta daisy does best in moist but well-drained soils and full sun. It is very easy to grow.

When selecting non-invasive plants for your garden, be sure to look for those that are suitable for your location, including moisture requirements, hardiness zone, and avoidance of known bear attractants among other factors.
