Gardeners' Notes:

I planted this about 8 months ago in my low-water garden. I has had blooms almost the entire time. I am a bit of a "trim" freak, so I keep it at a managable size and have been pleased with the production

Up here in Alberta (zone 3a) this plant, known as Fleabane, is a native wildflower.
It tends to self-seed in all kinds of places; often far from the parent plant which means it can come up in the wrong place once in a while.
But, it is really great in my wildflower garden. Bees and butterflies seem to like it. Children are amazed at the number of petals (there're around 50+ on each flower).
Over-all, I live with the occasional plant in the wrong place, pulling it up before it seeds, and encourage it in the correct places.

Benefits from cutting back every couple of years, or when it gets ragged and leggy. Trim back the stems with rosettes to keep the rosette and a few nodes and replant in Fall to enlarge and fill the bed.

I wanted my landscaper to get Erigeron karvinskianus "Profusion" and he mistakenly got Erigeron glaucus instead. It's a little ragged looking for my taste (whereas I find Profusion charming), but it's trouble-free to grow and some folks would find the lavender daisy-like blooms to be grand payment for so little work.

Positive YLcalif On Aug 8, 2005, YLcalif from Yorba Linda, CA wrote:

This is a wonderful lush groundcover for California native gardeners to use in entryway planters. It seems to do best in my yard (hot So. Calif.) with half-day shade and regular/frequent waterings. It is easily propagated by pulling off a stem with its topknot of leaves and pressing the stem into moist shady soil until it is rooted.

A hardy perennial that will thrive with little water. Beautiful light lilac flowers above it's foliage in spring and summer. Good groundcover in seaside areas. Likes a sandy well-drained soil in full sun. pokerboy.
