If you pass the color purple in a field

I do love the color purple in a garden. What could be more awakening, more alive?
I have it splashed thru out the garden. Here is a patch of unidentified chrysanthemum. I bought a pot of them at K-Mart one summer. I just liked their color and petals. If you look closely they are like little spokes . One small pot has increased in size and it fills a corner of the bed.

There are about 160 species of chrysanthemum, mostly native to China, Japan and. Europe. I don't know anything specific about this plant, another than I noticed it's unusual petals. I call it my K-Mart special, because I have never found it in another nursery or garden shop.

Love the website...beautiful garden. I don't think you'll have any problem selling this house!

I do believe that is some sort of African Daisy actually. I have some that look exactly like.
