  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of Growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of small daisies, emerging white, then turning pink, with yellow centres, give this plant an unusual, two-tone effect. It has a long flowering period, from May to October, and is amazingly versatile, being low-growing, happy in sun or partial shade and thriving in any well-drained soil. It's also tolerant of coastal conditions. Try it as an edging plant in a mixed border, alongside paths, in a gravel garden, spilling over walls, or planted in the cracks in paving. Bees and butterflies love all erigerons, so they make a wonderful addition to a wildlife garden, too.

  • Garden care: Trouble free. Avoid excessive winter wet and trim lanky stems in autumn.

              We have used it along the edge of a garnite cobbled sloping path to soften the junction between gravel and granite.We knew from info on crocus website that it was hardy but liked it wel drained so it is planted in the gravel and has grown spectacularly since we put it in in June.it was still flowering when we had the hard frosts and snow a couple of weeks ago.As we live in Cumbria i was a bit nervous of buying too many-it is called Mexican fleabane after all!But results so far suggest i will buying a lot more for next year.

                  Has bloomed for months, well into autumn.
                  Softens edge of path. Has been a great success on poor, dry chalky soil.
