Shasta Daisy "Becky": Suggested Comanion

jmcdmdJuly 16, 2014

I am so impressed with the Shasta Daisy "Becky". I bought it because it was awarded a "Perennial of the Year" honor. And it has not disappointed.

It's time to divide. So this fall, I'm going to 'spread it around' in a few sunny spots in my yard.

What perennial(s) do you think would go well with this plant? I prefer perennials, but suggestions on certain annuals are also welcome.

My 'Becky' has been divided many, many times. She is almost too aggressive. However, I do really like how she pairs with various daylilies - in this photo, 'Scarlet Pansy' is in the foreground, 'Hyperion' behind Becky, and I believe 'Grecian Gown' to the left.

They look good with purple and blue. Salvia and Veronica look awesome with them too.

They also make good companion plants with liatris/gayfeather, stokesia & rose campion. The first two fall into the blue/purple spectrum; the rose campion has silvery foliage and deep, cranberry red flowers.

Rouge, that's gorgeous. My Blue Paradise is not blue at all this year.

I have daisies beside annual and perennial Rudbeckia. The whites and yellows are so warm and cheerful.

I really am trying to stop enlarging my gardens, as my advancing age is obviously slowing me down, but seeing rouge's Blue Paradise is so very, very tempting!
