Thereof, where should Shasta Daisies be planted?
Plant Shasta daisies in full sun to light shade in well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Good soil drainage is especially important in winter because damp and soggy soil around the root crown of the plant can lead to rot.
Secondly, do Shasta daisies need full sun? Fertile soil is necessary for the best bloom on Shasta daisy flowers. Good drainage is important for the performance of the Shasta daisy as well. While Shasta daisies will take light shade, as opposed to a full sun location, the plants won't tolerate soggy roots or standing water.
Keeping this in consideration, do Shasta daisies spread?
Shasta daisies grow 2 to 3 feet tall. They like full sun and a well-drained soil with a pH level of 7 or higher. Their roots spread until the plant forms a bushy clump, 1 to 2 feet wide. Home gardeners plant Shasta daisies in flower beds as single plants, in small groups or in masses.
How do you keep Shasta daisies blooming?
Deadhead Shasta daisies regularly to promote continued blooming throughout the blooming season. To deadhead, pinch the wilted bloom along with the stem down to the next leaf. Deadhead the plants by hand, or use a pair of garden shears or pruners.
