These daisies are gloriously beautiful, and I think that inspired the name. A friend gave me a clump of them and I planted them beside my arbor trellis, at the lower end. They grew and bloomed there for a couple of years but dwindled away. To my surprise, I now find small clumps of them growing in unexpected places. There is one such clump at the edge of the Shasta Daisies beside my driveway, and another little clump beside the currant bush. This plant is growing very near my burn ring.
I had brush to burn–berry bush canes, and tree branches–but I couldn’t burn it because the heat from the fire would surely affect the beautiful daisies, perhaps even kill them. I decided to wait until after the flowers are done blooming before I would use the burn ring.
Then I received the advice that I could take the brush to the area behind the city garage and leave it there for them to dispose of. Instead of burning the brush this year, I hauled it to the city brush pile. The Gloriosa Daisy is still blooming beautifully. I’m glad that I didn’t have to keep the brush until the daisy was finished blooming this year. And, perhaps it will grow again in this same place. It’s welcome to grow there, or in another spot in my flower beds if it would choose that. It’s a beautiful flower.
