My Shasta Daisy

Shasta Daisy
Chrysanthemum maximum (Asteraceae)
A hardy perennial a native to Europe, it has naturalized throughout all regions of the United States and Canada I believe. It has white petalled flowers with golden yellow centers. Shasta Daisies generally grow 6 to 12 inches taller and have a larger flower head diameter. Prefers full sun to partial shade in fertile soil. My shasta daisy are grown in my backyard. It's usually started blooming in the month of June-July.
