These daisies also are named Nippon Daisies (Nipponanthemum nipponicum) because they originated in Japan; but they’re better known in this country as Montauk Daisies because of their publicized popularity in Montauk, Long Island (New York).

The Switch Grass (Panicum virgatum) is a native American plant that has its origins in the tall plains grasses; it also is known as Tall Panic Grass due to its botanical name. These hearty plants are rabbit-proof, deer-resistant, and can withstand salty soil, stiff sea winds, and a Maine winter. (Brooklin, Maine)
