Snowcap is a nice short plant, but it still has the same large and lovely white flowers that the taller Shasta Daisies do. I needed something short to put in front of the border and right next to the grassy walkway that would show off well and not grow tall enough to flop over the pathway. Snowcap worked perfectly.

Rita on Long Island, New York, zone 6, where it is humid during our summers.
