Buy Erigeron karvinskianus Mexican fleablane (syn. Profusion ): Daisy like flowers turn from white to pink

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • 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.

I planted the erigeron in a narrow gap between the greenhouse and some paving slabs. They looked beautiful all season. After a wet winter I have been clearing leaves around them and have found they have come through the winter extremely well and are more than twice the size of last year.

Brilliant plants

I put some along in cobbles in front of both conservatory and swing seat and in both locations they flourished, spread and provided interest with flowers for months, but even now with foliage. What is more, they have seeded elsewhere wonderfully.

Nice healthy plants that settled in quickly and have already sown themselves around. They grow large quickly so put them where you're happy for them to romp around--in my case around roses and salvias in poor soil in a hot, dry position, where they do very well. They sneer at weather of any kind and seem invulnerable to any kind of pest or disease. A lovely underplanter.

Fantastic plants, used these all around my garden, looks so attractive tumbling over edges of the patio, borders & raised beds. Grows & spreads quickly.

Useful

It sprawls a lot and looks quite untidy so if you want something that looks formal it's probably not the best plant. But I have it planted at the front of a bed that's got a rather woodland feel to it and it works very well. This is a very dry area and my soil is heavy and it appears to be very tolerant of these conditions.

Hello, You most certainly can - just make sure it gets loads of sun and does not get too dry.

When to plant Sarcococca confusa Hello, I am thinking of buying the above shrub, can you please tell me when is it the best time to plant it? I live in Cumbria which is currently still very cold with intermittent frosts. Thanks

Jackie Kerr

Hello, I have just taken delivery today of my last order,-a Sarococca and 2 x Erigeron karvinskianus. Can I check with you where they have been stored to date? Have they been kept outside or in an unheated green house etc... I am trying to ascertain whether I can keep them outside until planting now? It is only February and there is still ice and snow forecast here in the next week or so. Thanks

Jackie Kerr

Hello There, These plants have been grown outside and as they are fully hardy they should be planted out as soon as the ground is not frozen. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Crocus Helpdesk

Hello There, These plants are fully hardy so can be planted out at any time of the year as long as the ground isn't frozen. The ideal time for planting however is spring or autumn. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

When is the best time to plant the border on a budget? We are intrested in purchasing the plants suggested on 'money's tight' pre-planned border. Can you suggest when it is best to plant these plants?

sarah keeling

As a rule hardy plants grown in containers (such as the majority of the ones we sell), can be planted at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. The best times to plant however are in the autumn when the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth but the plant isn't in active growth, or in spring before the temperatures start to rise. You can also plant in mid summer as long as you make sure the plants are kept well watered.
