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

  • 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.
