What’s Growing at The Cottage No. 027

Cheerful Shasta daisies (Leucanthemum x superbum). They look similar to the familiar roadside daisy but these have larger and more robust blooms. Shasta daisies tend to bloom in clumps from 2 to 3 feet tall. Like clockwork, they return every spring and bloom until early fall. The flowers are also great for cutting so you can bring inside to enjoy. Legend has it that Shasta daisies not only attract butterflies but fairies too. You never know, you may spot one at The Cottage!
