Shasta daisies may not stop growing in your mild climate, so cut the flowering stems down to the level of the foliage when the flowers die. If you eperience a frost, cut back the damaged foliage. Otherwise, it will remain green all year around. If the plants are taking over the garden, you can divide clumps of Shasta's in the early spring. Coneflowers can receive the same treatment.
