Another lovely western North American fleabane that would be useful for a wildflower garden or rock garden. They usually grow in moister sites than other fleabanes, such as damp sunny depressions, roadside seepage areas and pond/streamsides. They will rgow in regular garden soil but do like a little extra moisture. Plants are about 6-8" tall with single mauve-purple 'daisies' in June or July.
