Daughter of the Wind

Grecian Windflower

A tuberous perennial valued for its daisy-like spring-blooming flowers, native to southeastern Europe, Turkey, Lebanon, and Syria. This small clump is planted in the back garden and you have to venture to see them. I planted them in the middle of a small bed, so its a surprise when you spot them. Additional flower colors of white, pink and reddish purple are available in taller cultivators that grow to as much as 8-12” tall and foliage is deeply cut and fern-like.

USDA hardiness zone 5 to zone 8
