RE: Shasta Daisy health

I'm wondering, based on your description of the foilage as as a weak greenish color, if you didn't have iron chlorosis. It's possible you also kept them too wet - that can cause foilage to yellow. When you pull them up it'll help to look at the roots and soil to see if the roots are mushy or there's a fungusy smell to the soil.
