Shasta daisy - the gardens of Crossroads of the World on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood - Saturday, May 1, 2010

In the gardens at the Crossroads of the World on Sunset Boulevard, May opens with brilliant sunshine no production companies filming there this day. But they should be, what with all the Shasta daisies (Leucanthemum x superbum) everywhere you look. These used to be classified in the genus Chrysanthemum, but they originated as a hybrid produced by Luther Burbank, a hybrid that ended up not much the source material at all. It was something new. And that's sort of a Hollywood thing. Warner Brothers, over the hill in Burbank the town named for Luther Burbank does the same sort of thing when they make movies based on a true story or a best-selling novel or whatever. You get something new, really. And these are sort of secondary suns.
