All Shasta Daisies
In The Perennial Department

reg. priced $12.99 & up
Sale 25% off

Daisies! This icon of spring has to be one of the most recognizable flowers in the world. Just hearing the name conjures up images of sunny skies, birds singing, a breeze in your hair, and a verse or two of 'zip-a-dee-dodah' running through your head.

As iconic as it is, the Shasta daisy was not created from plants native to the U.S., yet its very existence is all-American. Let us explain. A long time ago, in California, Luther Burbank developed this strain of daisy by patching together four different types of European and Asian daisies. After 17 years of trials and fine-tuning the Shasta daisy was finally introduced in 1901.

Burbank named the strain after Mt. Shasta in Northern California. And ever since then, it's been brightening up dark corners of the country with its inherent bright cheer. There are a lot more cultivars available now, but really, we think the simple white petals with the brilliant yellow center is just unbeatable.
