The first flower people learn to draw is often a circular disc with rays of petals surrounding it. That is because the most recognizable blooms are of the daisy family (Asteraceae). These beloved composites include perennials like asters, black-eyed Susan’s, coneflowers, chrysanthemums, and sunflowers that are prized by pollinators and great for gardeners. In this course, Heather Sherwood will review the best denizens of the daisy family for Chicago gardens and provide lessons on how to care for each plant. Class will include a presentation along with a guided tour.
