Love shasta daisies

We love Shasta daisies. At our old house, they bloomed every year around my oldest granddaughter's birthday. They are such as happy flower and so easy to grow.

These cheery flowers begin to bloom in June, right after many yellow daisies are blooming everywhere - each year, they grow so well, I divide more of the clumps to plant in other areas and always have plenty to share with friends. I've had a variety appear that only grows about 15" and am wondering what it might be? - same large, happy flowers but much shorter stems

Review for Alaska Shasta Daisy Seeds

1 out of 5 stars Jan 16, 2021
Difficult to grow in Houston, TX. Tried 2 times with started in AC environment and then transferred May and October direct to good outside soil in half sun & shade with careful watering. No flowers matured to beyond a bunch of green leaves.
Brett Babbitt from TX
Owner Response: Hi Brett, It is normal for perennials to take two years to produce flowers. Also, an abundance of nitrogen can lead to robust leafy growth instead of flowering. We hope that helps.

Good seeds

Good seeds all of them sprouted but I couldn't keep them alive, I'll try in the fall again as I think it was too hot for them.
