Michaelmas Daisies

Michaelmas DaisiesMichaelmas Daisies, also known as Starworts, are a numerous family of hardy herbaceous perennials. Some few are very pretty, while others can only be ranked with wild flowers.

They thrive in any soil or position, but flourish best where there is a due proportion of sunshine. Michaelmas Daisies are easily raised from seed, sown early in spring, or may be increased by root-division either in the autumn, as soon as they have done flowering, or in the spring.

They vary in height from one to five feet.
