Most cultivars are classified as a cold beneficial plants. Plants that have been vernalized produce more flowers and bloom faster. 'Banana Cream' has an obligate cold requirement for flowering. Provide 8-10 weeks of cold (<44 F) when vernalizing leucanthemum.
After vernalization, leucanthemum flower best when they are grown with warm temperatures and long days (16 hr days or using a 4 hr night interuption during naturally short day lengths).
Leucanthemum are sensitive to some pesticides (namely Avid and Orthene). Care should be taken when applying chemicals.
