Shasta Daisies Grow Well in Zone 8 With Full Sun

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

There are many different varieties of daisies that grow well in Flower Mound, Texas (Zone 8). What I like about them the most is that they are perennials that I can count on year after year. Often defined as purity, innocence, new beginnings, joy and cheerfulness, they are my dependable plants that begin to bloom mid May through mid summer or longer. This plant in my feature photo started in 2014. It continues to grow stronger year after year. 

The butterflies it attracts are always a nice surprise that widens the eyes to observe closer. Did you know there are 12 Birth Month Flowers? Daisies are an April flower. Hawthorne is for May and Honeysuckle for the month of June. 


I have a new variety of Shasta Daisies that look a lot different. I planted it in early spring,and it started blooming two weeks ago this May. This type of Shasta Daisy grows like a bouquet of flowers and blends well with all the other flowers in my garden. My lobelias continue to bloom along with all the others I planted this spring. 

Besides an array of butterflies, I also have hummingbird moths that fly to visit my gardens before the sun sets. They can be found in Texas, Florida, Maine, and Alaska. The hummingbird moths are very fast and hard to photograph. 

Planting and planning have a lot in common. They both teach lessons in patience. How do you succeed in planting perennials? Know your climate, the intensity of the sun, type of soil, and choose wisely.

Love your Shasta Daisies, Paul;  so very pretty and special.  And to think of its addition to our gardens:  a gentle, dainty beauty,  a perennial, and comes with butterflies.
