Shasta Daisy Has Yellow Leaves At Bottom

Question From: L. Birchbauer - Waukesha, Wisconsin, United States
Q: We just had Shasta Daisies put in by our landscaper last year. This year they have grown very large, many buds, but have yellow leaves at the bottom of the plants....we have had a lot of rain this spring, could that be the problem or is it something worse? Should I remove the yellow leaves? Thanks

A: The leaves at the bottom of the plant are fading, but not a problem. Clean them up to prevent disease if rains prevail. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
