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.

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.
