Thousands of daisies. I took the pictures last summer at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, NC. I’ve been searching for the seed and think it might be Shasta Daisy White Knight that grows to 36″. The ones pictured above are very tall. They are suppose to last 3 months. I couldn’t find seed but I found the plant at Burpee. It’s $9.95 a plant.  Does anyone know of a similar daisy that grows just as tall from seed?

    Shasta Daisies are lovely but can get too long and fall over in a rain/ wind. They are self-supporting here but need others to be around them.

    Here is an article on a great new variety called ‘Becky’

    which I think could be a really good garden plant.
    Great info and thanks! I’m sorry your reply went to Spam. I’ve had to turn off links until the gremlin goes away. I’ve heard of Becky. I did think of what was going to support them. I have a few other tall perennials in mind like Phlox and Garden Verbena—the tall one. The Daisies will need some help. I’ll check out the links and thanks for passing them along.

    I don’t know the variety, but they sure look summery and happy!
    I love them and they bloomed forever. I ride my bike at this park and saw these blooming for a very long time. There was no tag. Something that beautful should be tagged huh? I bet a lot of poeple want to know.

    Those almost look like the old fashioned kind of daisies I have a few of. Some years they spread, others they don’t. Mine didn’t bloom last year because I moved them to my new bed. They grew well, so I’m thinking I’ll have some blooms this year.

    I’m sorry I couldn’t help you identify those. They are yummy looking. (Is that what you said?)
    Yes! I do think they look yummy. That’s a word in my vocabulary meaing terrific. I hope you get more blooms. I’ve heard of some plants taking a year to recover from a move. This garden is maintained by the Master Gardeners of our county. If I don’t get the answer here….I’ll go ask. You know…if all else fails….ask.
