2003 perennial of the year: Leucanthum x superbum ‘Becky’

The 2003 choice is Leucanthum x superbum ‘Becky’. This classic Shasta daisy is an excellent cut flower, with large single white flowers and deep green foliage. It grows about 3’ (90 cm) tall. With regular deadheading, it can bloom from June to September.

‘Becky’ likes sun to partial shade, but isn’t fussy about the soil, and needs little extra watering. Most shastas are short-lived; divide them every three years, and they’ll live longer. Pests rarely bother them, and deer don’t eat them.
