Deadheading Shasta Daisy

I am wondering if deadheading shasta daises allow them to bloom again as
prolific as they do first in the Spring?

You can but it must be a clean cut, all the way into fall if you like.

It is important to keep the daisies deadheaded. If you don't they will stop blooming. If you keep them deadheaded, they will bloom all season. But generally not as prolifically as the first flush in spring.

I deadhead mine. Get new blooms. However the plants are a bit shorter.
