Asclepias syriaca, common Milkweed
in Madaquesham Valley - oh the fragrance!
So once Spring actually gets underway, I start dreaming of the lovely fields we enjoy on our little island.
The ox-eyed daisy is a favorite of mine. not indigenous, can be a problem in sensitive areas where rare native plants need the space.
It seems most places I have lived that the wild daisy has been a staple - in college it was our standard bouquet for all events, I use them on our Flower Truck in June before the Shastas come in.
This "drift" of Daisy is a natural distribution - growing between Little Bluestem grass and other native grasses and forbs.
This pattern is a common plant distribution on Nantucket - drifts, waves of a particular plant - and if one is planting a meadow it should be considered.
