Discovered by Walters Gardens, 'Banana Cream' Shasta Daisy is a lovely newer color for Shasta Daisies. The 4-inch wide flowers are lemon yellow when they open, brightening to light butter yellow, and finally to creamy white as they mature. An extra row of ray petals gives the flowers a fuller appearance than truly single varieties have. Since it produces flower buds at each axillary shoot, 'Banana Cream' blooms prolifically all summer long atop strong, upright stems. Keep plants deadheaded for the longest bloom period.
