A beautiful dwarf variety of Shasta daisy, ‘Real Neat’ speaks for itself with its naturally compact form and dense masses or leaves, stems and flowers.
A robust herbaceous perennial, the narrow, deep green, thoothed leaves form a tight clump and from June, straight, erect stems rise bearing large, sumptuous double flowers with the most wonderfully fluted pure white petals arranged around a large, centre of golden yellow stamens. Leucanthemums make first class cut flowers and last well in water, and bees, butterflies and other insects are drawn to the bright, wide open flowers.
‘Real Neat’ is so easy to grow and undemanding to look after. It’s happy in sun or dappled shade growing in moist but well-drained soil and needs nothing more than the regular removal of flowered stems to keep the display continuing into the autumn. An excellent plant for container growing, it’s such a naturally tidy plant and will look wonderful on a patio, balcony, or close to a door as a cheerful welcome for visitors.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting and growing to a height of 40cm (16in) and spread of 35cm (14in).
