From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are literally hundreds of cultivars of this wonderful roadside weed. The specific epithet, novi-belgii, arose when the state of New York was once known as New Belgium. The smooth or nearly glabrous leaves differentiate them from New England asters. The leaves clasp the stem similar to New England asters, but flowers normally have only 15-25 ray flowers. The flowers are not as good for cutting as the New England asters but provide excellent color in the late summer and fall garden. They are called Michaelmas daisies because they bloom around September 29, St. Michael's Day, in the British Isles. - Armitage

Flowering Time: Blooms August - September.
