Leucanthemum superbum Spoonful of Sugar®
Common Name: Shasta Daisy
The first thing you’ll notice about this cute Shasta Daisy is the enormous flower size. The second thing you’ll notice is its incredibly compact, dome-like habit, with flowers produced almost all the way to the ground. 11 cm, creamy white flowers have two rows of very long petals. Flowers are held tight and compact against the attractive, dark green foliage, with a second wave of flowers following the initial wave. Spoonful of Sugar is a free-flowering variety.
