Other info: My preference for the white shasta daisies is this variety.   I like it because it blooms early and makes great little bunches of cut flowers that customers love.   It also seems to be a more hardy perennial type that 'Alaska' which seems to die out easier. - - photo is of Alaska, but they look pretty much the same.

Germination: Easy germination. Start indoors 4-6 weeks prior to last spring frost. Sow seed in container on good seed starting mix. Cover seeds, but very lightly as light seems to aid in germination. Moisten mix and keep mix moist until germination begins. Place in location at 68-70°F. Germination should begin in 4-10 days. Seed may also be direct sown to garden as soon as possible after last spring frost.
