The Plant of the Day is Leucanthemum x superbum. The common name is Shasta Daisy. There are several of these in the front of the Discovery Garden that were recently donated & planted by Judy Tomlin. It is a perennial and is attractive to bees, butterflies, and birds. It like sun to partial shade. According to Wikipedia it was named after Mount Shasta because its petals were the color of the snow. It originated as a hybrid produced in 1890 by the American horticulturist Luther Burbank from a number of daisies. It tolerates drought. Deadheading (removal of spent flowers) is recommended to encourage continuous bloom.
