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, wilcox penstemon, pussytoes, harebell, and white spirea.
