The seeds of Shasta Daisies are small, but mighty! There is enough seed in this grow kit to cover an area of roughly 500 square feet with an explosion of beautiful blooms (that’s an area larger than 20 feet long by 20 feet wide). There are approximately 1,600 individual seeds here, and most will germinate if the conditions are right. Each successful seed will produce a tidy clump of dark green foliage approximately a foot across with bright flowers shooting skyward on sturdy stems 2 – 3 feet tall.
There is no need to plant all your daisies in one plot unless you want an impressive field of pure flowers. You can also orchestrate clumps of these beauties here and there by planting accents strategically around your yard or property. Or, put them into pots, planter boxes, or other containers for a burst of brightness on your patio, porch, or front steps. Choose where you plant carefully, because, if the Shasta Daisies are happy where you are, they may re-seed themselves year after year and could be with you for more than the original plant’s 3 – 5 year lifespan.
