Showy Townsend Daisy


Showy Townsend Daisy
Townsendia florifer
(town-SEN-dee-uh)

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.
