Fantastic, Evan! Thanks so much for sharing! I find touring local botanical gardens a great way to find new plants for the garden, particularly for this time of year when a lot of perennials are no longer providing color.

Thanks Neal. That Montauk Daisy is 4'+ across. It's looks much more like a sub-shrub that way. I'll have to find out how they prune it because the look is great. I'll post a pic of the back side, which has opened up, tonight.
