Leucanthemum Snow Lady

Leucanthemum Snow Lady


This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


Position: full sun or partial shade

Soil: moderately-fertile, moist but well-drained soil

Rate of growth: average

Flowering period: June to September

Hardiness: fully hardy

Justifiably popular, this showy shasta daisy produces a profusion of single, pure white, daisy-like flowers up to 10cm across with bright yellow discs from June to September. It is very free-flowering and makes a stunning show planted in bold drifts towards the front of a sunny border. It combines well with any yellow Achillea, or with ornamental grasses. It also makes a good cut flower.

Garden care: Divide congested plants in early spring or late summer. Protect young plants from slugs and snails. Cut down to the ground in autumn.
