This is the yellowest flowering Shasta daisy ever! Long blooming and compact with semi-double flowers. 'Goldfinch' is the product of years of breeding for yellow flowers. All other “yellow” Leucanthemum pale in comparison! Charming semi-double flowers, very slowly and gracefully change from bright lemon yellow to an ivory white. A real gem among the bland Leucanthemum offerings.
