Plant Appreciation #019 Michaelmas Daisy
Rudolphe Goethe (below also)The beds at The Picton Garden.
Michaelmas Dasies or Asters, herbaceous perennials that flower during September & October.
The Picton Garden, who hold the national collection of Asters, was exploding with Michaelmas daisies last week, they filled the borders with thousands of delicate daisy heads of varying shades of pink and purple. With beds in the garden specifically dedicated to identifying which varieties are which it’s the perfect place to choose your daisies, there is such a huge choice that the decision is impossible! Especially as they just keep getting better and better the more you explore the garden.
Above are a few of my favourite varieties, not only did I come home with a few plants but they also had bunches of cut Asters too so I just couldn’t resist those!
