This is my first ever shasta daisy to bloom. It is the variety known as Becky. This is purported to be one of the few shastas that do well in the deep South. Judging by the health of mine, this report must be true. I think this is a wonderful cottage garden plant. It's so cheerful looking! Mine is quite a sturdy plant that is not too tall and floppy. I hope it takes over this whole corner that I have it planted in. The date on the picture is wrong - it was actually taken on 6/30/09.
