    • Was beautiful for one season but never made it through a zone 5 winter. Very disappointing performance.

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.

    • This daisy is fabulous in my south garden. Blooms from June to August when watered enough. Seems to love the heat and sunshine. Love the pale yellow with the white near by.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • Awesome plant. A beauty. Not white, not yellow. A nice creamy color. My dog has wrecked havoc where this plant grew. I transplanted what was left of it and it is growing and blooming again.

    • Perhaps it just needs some more time, but it didn't perform very well last season. I am hoping, as I don't like"Bright" yellows, but would love some soft yellows to set off the mauves in my garden.

      Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
    • I love this plant. It grows well and the flowers are excellent. I look forward to other varieties of Shasta Daisy and hope to see a ruffled version of this one before too long.
