description for "Shasta Daisy: Leucanthemum x superbum 'Silberprinzesschen'"

'Silberprinzesschen' is a fine dwarf Shasta daisy cultivar that does well in compost enriched garden soil. Regular watering and deadheading keeps the flowers coming all summer. Good companion plants include Salvia, Veronica 'Blue Charm', and Lavenders. A hardy perennial, forming dense colonies once established. The white petaled flowers with golden yellow centers are borne individually on single erect stems. Compared to its cousin, the ox-eyed daisy, shasta daisies have a larger flower head diameter. Prefers full sun to partial shade in fertile soil. Cut back after flowering to prolong the blooming season. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
