A rare daisy for the garden

A true Great Lakes endemic, the Lakeside daisy, Tetraneuris (Hymenoxys) herbacea, is very amenable to cultivation. But in the wild in Michigan it is known from only one location in one county (Mackinac), where it grows in marly soil near a cedar swamp. This species is used as the logo for the Great Lakes Chapter of the North American Rock Garden Society.

  1. I like this one right here. Daisies are amazing when they go full bloom in spring. I have red daisy seeds all lined up.
