|'Everest' is often sold as 'Mount Everest'. Both have flowers that are single and 4 inches wide. Often sold as Chrysanthemum maxiumum. Coarse, leathery leaves with snow white petals (2 to 4 inches across) and gold centers begin blooming in May, with largest show around early June, then continue sporadically until frost. Flower stalks are 2 to 4 feet tall making these splendid in borders. Shasta Daisies make excellent cut flowers, as they are long lasting (as are most Chrysanthemums). Tolerant of many soils, but do require water in hot, sunny climates. Divide clumps every 2 years, or establish plants from seed. Grow Shasta daisies if you love to share plants with your friends. You'll all have plenty within 3 years! Remove and discard spent flowers to prolong bloom period.
