Leucanthemum 'Real Galaxy'

The "Real" collection of Leucanthemum from PlantHaven highlights distinctly different varieties with unique flowers. All have a sturdy, upright habit that needs no staking, and all are well-branched, producing a great canopy of blooms. 'Real Galaxy' has many layers of pure white, fine-fringed petals with contrasting deep golden centers carried on very strong stems. Blooms become fuller with age. These varieties are very floriferous with improved disease resistance. All bloom early-mid summer and then repeat in fall. This superb Shasta daisy variety is well-behaved with a tight clumping habit.
