Leucanthemum x superbum 'Phyllis Smith' has particularly shaggy looking flowers, with masses of slender, spidery petals surrounding a bright yellow centre. It’s perfect for growing in a mixed herbaceous border and makes an excellent cut flower. Being single, the flowers are attractive to pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Grow Leucanthemum x superbum 'Phyllis Smith’ in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Deadhead spent blooms to prolong flowering and cut back completely in late-autumn.

Bear in mind that all leucanthemums can be toxic to dogs and cats if ingested, but symptoms are usually mild.
