Fleabane

Issue No. 16 - July 14, 2002

Iíve started a new project: photographing all of the common wildflowers in Stamford to make up some sort of local reference.

This is one of my favourite summer meadow plants. The common fleabane is a very common, almost weedy, aster that blooms in June and July in full sun, usually in grassy areas or your garden. For the garden, it can be kept to a reasonable height and the flowering season lengthened by pruning once or twice before the flower buds form.
