Shasta Daisy

Although the brightly colored social butterflies, gerberas, have long be a favorite flower to use when entertaining, Shasta Daisies offer a warm, sweet welcome to guests that greet with a hug. And do not mistake them for the standard blooms that can be fetched from most any local market. Shasta Daisies are meant to be grown & nurtured in your own yard pairing well with a host of classic summer garden clippings. Its rich foliage emerges as an unassuming planting but over time, the stems make their journey towards the sun. Once the petals open, they pay homage to the gift with a glow that beams from the center of each bloom. Divide & divide again. Shasta Daisies are meant to be shared– just be certain a small portion of the root is left intact when digging & separating. Give them to friends & family or fill additional spaces in flower beds for an even larger impact the next growing season. Learn how these lovely flowers can spruce up entertaining spaces quickly.

The Yard Arrangement

  Shasta Daisies make beautiful arrangements & just a few stems can be used to create small bursts of sunshine throughout spaces. Choose ceramic vases & glasses with clean lines. Snip & gather blooms early in the morning. Invert the flowers & give them a little shake to remove any tiny garden creatures. Cut the stems low enough so that the blooms rest on the lip of the vase. Tuck in a few additional garden favorites such as Lambs Ear, HostaVictoria Blue Salvia, Creeping Jenny & Southern Shield Fern for variety. The soft color palate offers a cool, sweet look to party spaces when summer temperatures are scorching. Use the flowers around your home on side tables, vanities & kitchen islands.
