26 is last number.
Daisies should be a staple in all gardens, especially cottage gardens.
I was surprised there is only one aster in the list.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

I thought there might have been a tie for 25th place.

I am surprised the paper or everlasting daisies didn't make it? Xerochrysum bracteatum.

We don't have many articles lined up for this week and I'm planning on running a "Top 10 Echinaceas" article later on. It sounds like maybe we should do a Top 10 Asters, as well.

I bet if lots of people post a lot of asters in the DB this year this list will look very different next year!
