Terra Nova Nurseries Debuts Leucanthemum ‘Lemon Meringue’

Terra Nova Nurseries recently released a sneak peek of leucanthemum ‘Lemon Meringue.’ This new variety grows with tight, heavy branching and features long-lasting semi-double daises, opening with a lemony citrus yellow and shifting to a clean, crisp white flower. An extended bloom time with successive flowers opening on top of previous blooms is a trait of this perennial. 

Leucanthemum ‘Lemon Meringue’ has a wide base with a petite, mounding growth habit, making it ideal for mixed containers, sunny borders and the front-centers of beds. The plant blooms June through August and has a variety of special uses, including being deer resistant and well-suited for the deep South. It is also an effective pollinator attractor.

Leucanthemum ‘Lemon Meringue’ is hardy to Zones 5-9, and its exposure calls for full sun. This eye-catching perennial desires average, well-drained soil and an average amount of water when planted in gardens; it also prefers to be dry between waterings. The plant has a height of 6 inches, width of 14 inches and flower height of 9 inches.

Terra Nova Nurseries has created a Plant Profile page and Grower Recipe specific to this new variety, so growers interested in orders can learn about growing habits, plant characteristics, fertilization recommendations, water requirements, and other insights provided by the breeding team.
