I'm planning to plant my first perennial flowers next Spring. I'd like to grow Snow Lady Shasta Daisies from seed but I read conflicting information about the maximum height of Snow Lady. Some say this "dwarf" plant grows up to 2-3 feet tall and some say up to 12-15 inches. Most images of Snow Lady looks 12-15 inches.

Any gardeners out there who have experience with SnowLady Shasta Daisy? What is its correct maximum height?

Where do you live, zone, climate ?
Hear ! With a long growing season.
I usually double what seed pack says. Pack, says 18 inches.
Well !!!... I know, its, gowing to grow, to at least, to 36 inches.
That's, my basic rule of thumb.
Thumbs up
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

I've never grown this pretty plant but I wonder if our database info may be in error. It lists Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum x superbum 'Snow Lady') as growing 2 to 3 feet in height but most other places list it as 1foot and to 2 feet when in bloom.

Maybe one of our database administrators can help. @Calif_Sue, @eclayne, @jon

Here are the links to sites that list the height as 1 to 2 feet:

These sites list it as 8 to 10 inches in height:
