Maintenance

Deadheading will promote further blooming. Divide clumps of Becky shasta daisy every 2-3 years to maintain vigor and propagate.

Practical use

Becky shasta daisy attracts bees, birds and butterflies. Fortunately, it is not attractive to deer, making it an effective component in deer control.
