Leucanthemums have had a recent resurgence of popularity, which is likely thanks to exciting new varieties becoming available. Leucanthemum x superbum, also known as Shasta Daisy, is a hybrid version that is by no means new, having first been developed in the 1890s. But some new fantastic varieties are bringing great value to the garden, developed to be more compact and to offer repeat flowering.
The big, bright flowers of leucanthemums are produced all summer in white, cream and yellow shades. Their flowers are loved by pollinators and are also a popular choice as a cut flower. Easy to grow, simply position in a sunny spot and deadhead to enjoy a continuous display of blooms.
‘Real Glory’ is a hardy, clump-forming perennial with compact dark green leaves. The semi-double, pale-yellow flowers gradually fade to cream when produced from summer into autumn. It offers great colour for mixed and herbaceous borders.
