daisy – chrysanthemum

daisies

IMG_4297Some people are surprised to learn that daisies belong to the chrysanthemum family, bred to bloom during the Summer rather than the Fall.  Daisies are long-lasting cut flowers (as long as the water is changed regularly and no leaves are allowed below the water’s surface).  Try putting a daisy in a clear container in a window that gets at least morning sun and you might find that after a week or two it starts to grow roots.  Like many plants with “hairy” stems, daisies can be propagated in water or moist soil — I usually dip the stems in rooting hormone when I start them in soil.
