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 in planting pockets in between paving slabs. Bees and butterflies love all erigerons, so they make a wonderful addition to a wildlife garden, too.


  • Garden care:
    A trouble free and easy-care plant. Avoid excessive winter wet and trim lanky stems in autumn.


  • Sowing instructions:
    Sow thinly in trays of seed compost, then cover with a fine layer of compost. Firm gently and keep moist. Keep at approx. 15-20C. Seedlings appear 14-28 days When large enough to handle transplant to individual 7.5cm pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to outside conditions in late May (avoid frosts). Trasplant 30cm apart in flowering position.


  • Sow: February to April
