Leucanthemum ‘Lemon Meringue’
A sweet little slice of sunshine for any garden. Cute and compact, this Shasta daisy opens a lemony citrus yellow and shifts to a clean crisp white flower. Tight, heavy branching creates an extended bloom time with successive flowers opening on top of previous blooms. Wide base but petite habit lends itself well to sunny borders, up front and center in beds, or great for mixed containers.
