Plants We Love: Leucanthemum ‘Real Sunbeam’

We love the bright, happy, easy-to-care-for flowers of the new ‘Real Sunbeam’ Shasta daisy from PlantHaven. This wonderful summer-blooming perennial has three rows of lemon-green petals forming a daisy flower atop sturdy stems. The ideal plant for a sunny garden, ‘Real Sunbeam’ will continue to bloom if given a little care, including deadheading.
