Happening on a patch of aspen daisies in the wild is like stumbling into someone’s cottage garden. Each plant produces a profusion of pale blue to purple flowers with bright yellow centers, often so profusely that the blooms overlap like a fireworks grand finale. They are generally found in dry open forests, and appreciate a little bit of afternoon shade but will thrive in full sun with some extra water. Good companions include fescue, pinegrass, scarlet gilia, harsh paintbrush, wilcox penstemon, pussytoes, pennsylvania cinquefoil, harebell, and white spirea.
