L. x superbum – Chrysanthemum maximum of gardens – C. x superbum – Shasta Daisy – This robust, clump forming perennials is a cross between L. lacustre and L. maximum grows 24-36″ tall and wide. It produces inversely lance shaped, toothed, glossy, almost fleshy, dark green basal leaves, to 12″ long, and shorter, lance shaped, stalkless stem leaves. From early summer to early autumn it bears solitary, single or double white flowers, 3-5″ across, with pale golden centers. Good for cutting.
