Leucanthemums, also known as Shasta Daisies, are used for both cut flowers and garden highlights while also providing food and habitat for many kinds of pollinators. Enjoy this beauty in the garden as a medium-height bright spot (great for moonlight gardens) that will provide years of beauty with very little maintenance other than deadheading spent blooms if desired, but not necessary.
Pink flowers bring a massive color range from pale pink to deep magenta. If you are making a totally pink garden design, start by adding pink color diversity. From light and delicate pink colors to bright and bold, there are so many AAS Winning pinks to add! When you add different hues of pinks with a green foliage backdrop that makes a definite eye-catching garden.
