The yellow-eyed St. Michaelmas daisy is our native aster. He can be
clipped all summer in a tidy summer foliage mound, or left to sprawl over the amaryllis foliage, such as this. The foreground spikes are remnants of a Physostegia attempt for fall pink. The invasive mongrel
is weeded out at every opportunity, yet returns from vapors -- every year.
