Erigeron karvinskianus is a fully hardy perennial, most notable for its energetic display of colour-changing daisies.
Plants form a low mound of grey-green leaves followed by an abundant display of small daisy flowers which open white before turning an eye-catching pinkish-purple, creating an ever-changing display of blooms with an unusual two-tone effect.
Perfect for informal, relaxed garden settings, erigeron will fill your garden, pots and baskets with blossom from May to the first frosts, that's 6 months of colour EVERY YEAR!
Also known as Mexican Fleabane, this amazingly versatile little gem is happy in sun or partial shade and thrives in any well-drained soil and is even happy in dry Mediterranean or gravel gardens. It really is an all-purpose plant, which is supported by its many awards, including the RHS Award of Garden Merit, which means it has been rigorously tested and declared a perfect garden plant - so you can be sure that it will perform.
A multi-purpose garden filler, try using erigeron as an edging plant in your garden borders and paths, as an exuberant container plant, or even planted in the cracks in paving. Being a native of Mexico, it really doesn't mind a bit of drought when established.
As well as the AGM, erigeron is recommended by the RHS as a Plant for Pollinators as it is a magnet for butterflies and bees so makes a really great addition to a wildlife garden.
Supplied as 3 x 9cm potted plants ready to be planted out when all risk of frost is passed.
Dead-head faded blooms to keep plants flowering. Divide every 2-3 years to maintain the vigour of the clump.
