Showy Townsend Daisy

Showy Townsend Daisy
Townsendia florifer

This is one of the Townsend Daises. They are wildflowers native mostly to the Western United States. This one was for sale as an alpine plant. It grows to about 6 inches and often only lasts a couple of years in the garden. It can seed it itself to keep a patch going.

After weeks of cold weather we have had a bit of a heat wave. Hopefully things will go back to ‘normal’. Normal for New England that is.
