WHAT DOES SHASTA DAISY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Shasta daisy

Leucanthemum × superbum

Leucanthemum × superbum is a commonly grown flowering herbaceous perennial plant with the classic daisy appearance of white petals around a yellow disc, similar to the oxeye daisy Leucanthemum vulgare Lam but larger. Formerly classified in the genus Chrysanthemum, these daisies were transferred to their own genus of Leucanthemum because they lack some traits of true Chrysanthemum species. Shasta daisies are characterized by a distinct odor which some find unpleasant, which makes them unusual amongst flowers. It originated as a hybrid produced in 1890 by the American horticulturist Luther Burbank, Leucanthemum lacustre Samp. × Leucanthemum maximum DC. It was named after Mount Shasta, because its petals were the color of the snow. Some members of the genus are considered noxious weeds, but the Shasta daisy remains a favorite garden plant and groundcover. Many cultivars are suitable for cut flowers, such as 'Becky', 'Esther Read', 'Silberprinzesschen', 'Snow Lady', 'Tinkerbell', 'Wirral Pride', 'Wirral Supreme'. The cultivar 'T.E. Killin' has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
