Shasta Daisy Plants
Q.

Is it Shasta Daisies or is it grass?

Zone Southern California | sommardag added on May 16, 2015 | Answered

I planted Shasta Daisy seeds in April (in southern California). I followed the directions and eight weeks later it looks like a thick carpet of grass and nothing else. What do Shasta leaves look like? The seed company showed me a picture that looked similar to the leaves I have, but I am still worried that the previous lawn has come back to life even after we killed it off and roto-tilled the area and waited a long time before planting. Should I give up and start all over?
