If you want a flower to add some cheeriness to your full sun garden all summer long, Shasta daisies are the way to go.
Although they spread by rhizomes, they aren’t invasive (like some roadside daisies can be) and they don’t need a lot of care or fertilizer to keep them growing.
In fact, soil that is too rich will cause more leaves and fewer flowers.
These flowers also attract butterflies. are drought-tolerant and are deer and rabbit resistant.
Grow them from seed or buy live plants.
