Leucanthemella serotina 'Herbststern'

Giant Daisy

Plant Type:

SUN PERENNIALS

Leucanthemella serotina‘ Herbststern’ – This is the rare Giant Daisy blooming September and October with pure white daisy flowers with a yellow button eye on stems 5’ to 6’ tall. This selection is very much like the species except each petal is slightly broader. We have ours planted with the Giant Fountain Grass - Pennisetum alpecuroides 'Foxtrot', Sedum 'Autumn Joy', near Physocarpus opulifolius 'Brimstone and Fire' and a trio of Viburnum dilatatum 'Erie' - an opulent late season grouping... it's about as complete and perfect a September show one can put together in the garden (maybe add in one of the taller very late flowering daylilies - I think I'm gonna do it!) This is followed and overlapped with a hardy, late season mum, 'Cambodian Queen'. Wonderful. If ordered mid to late season this very tall perennial will have to be cut back but not to worry: it will resprout if there are more weeks of warmth before the colder nights overtake. 'Herbstern' will sprout with multiple stems the following spring. Established pot grown plant by division or cutting.
