Life in color. Yellow Daisy Festival at Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park, Georgia. Yellow Daisies in bloom just in time for the festival (September 10 – 13)

Considered a family event, Yellow Daisy Festival takes place on the second weekend in September. In fact, the holiday is a tribute to a rare flower, the yellow daisy, or Viguiera Porteri, that blooms on Stone Mountain near Atlanta, Georgia. Meanwhile, the flowers, two and one-half feet tall, grow in granite crevices, sprouting in April and not blooming until September. And then, they give the mountain a golden blanket. They wilt if they are picked and seem to thrive only in the crevices. According to historians, it was Pennsylvania missionary Thomas Porter who first discovered yellow daisy in 1846. So, he sent a specimen to noted botanist Asa Gray for identification. But Gray decided it was the Viguiera genus, comprising about 60 other species that grow largely in Central America and Mexico. However, the only other place in the United States the yellow daisy has been identified is California, but there the plant is larger and woodier.
