Description

The Real Glory Leucanthemum from the Southern Living Plant Collection brings brilliant, luminous hues into your summer landscape, year after year after year! Leucanthemums, also known as Shasta Daisies, earned their spot in gardens decades ago, and the Real Glory continues this tradition. Watch as it sends up stunning Gerber Daisy-like blooms with weeping white petals and frilly golden pom-pom centers. Furthermore, this variety has a more extended bloom period than traditional Shasta Daisies! It begins blooming in early summer and reblooms into fall.

The foliage on the Real Glory Leucanthemum is fresh dark green with a light gloss. Each leaf is elongated and gently serrated on the edges. Consequently, this foliage provides a fantastic backdrop for the brightly colored flowers.

This is an easy-care plant that proves itself to be reliably hardy once established.

Fans of cut flowers are sure to enjoy this perennial! Its blooms can last up to two weeks when kept in a vase. Additionally, pollinators are sure to enjoy visiting this heavy bloomer.

At maturity, this variety stretches about 2-3 feet high and wide, including bloom height.

Real Glory Leucanthemum Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 5-9. Warmer USDA Zones, such as 8b-9b, may find the Real Glory Leucanthemum to be evergreen. Meanwhile, colder environments tend to experience it as a deciduous plant.

Provide Full Sun exposure for best results, at least 4-5 hours of direct exposure daily.

Water 3-4 times per week during the first growing season, depending on the weather in your area. During the second growing season, water 2-3 times per week.

Plant in rich garden soil with good drainage for ideal growth.

The Real Glory Leucanthemum requires little supplementary fertilizer to thrive. However, top dress the soil around the base of your plant yearly with compost or composted manure to provide steady nutrients for your plant.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

Spacing Your Real Glory Leucanthemum

For a seamless planting, plant your Real Glory Leucanthemum 15-18 inches apart. For space between plantings, plant them over 24 inches
apart.
