- “Bananna Cream”
‘Banana Cream’ is a long-blooming Shasta Daisy with flowers that begin bright lemon-yellow before maturing through all shades of pastel into ivory cream! A fully blooming plant is a breathtaking sight, and the flowers last 2 weeks or more in the vase, assuring you of months of beautiful indoor arrangements!
Measuring 4 inches across, these blooms are technically semi-double, an extra layer of petals beneath the first adding depth and still more color to the display. The long, slender, very crowded petals surround a merry golden-orange center on thick, sturdy stems. Even the side-shoots bud heavily on ‘Banana Cream,’ provided the first blooms of the season are cut or deadheaded promptly.
The bloom season begins in late spring in most climates, continues through summer, and even trickles into autumn. That’s an incredible span for any plant, and much longer than most Shastas! Butterflies pay homage to ‘Banana Cream’ throughout it all, adding further bright color to the display.
‘Banana Cream’ reaches 15 to 18 inches high and 18 to 24 inches wide, with dense branching and dark green, healthy foliage held below the blooms. Far more disease-resistant than older varieties, this perennial asks little more than direct sun and fertile, well-drained garden soil to thrive and multiply over time in the garden. Climate Zone 5.
