Native plants are well adapted to our growing conditions, and so most of them are easy to grow and need only minimal care once established.
The foliage of plants in this family is sometimes aromatic, and the flowers are mostly like daisies.
I am trying to grow more shrubs that fruit at different times of the year in order to provide a continuous buffet and attract birds to my garden.
Daisies are members of the Compositae family, which consists of 950 different genera and over 20,000 species.
Flower names often get to the "roots" of the geographical origin.
I love it for its wealth of golden flowers, which fill my vases from mid summer to mid fall.
They are a good perennial for gardens visited by deer, who tend to avoid the aromatic plants.
There are about 40 Eupatarium species of native North American wildflowers available and they like room to romp and form large clumps.
