Overview

Erigeron is a large genus containing many annual, biennial and perennial species typically grown for their pretty, daisy-like flowers. Also known as Fleabane or Daisy, some species have a clumping habit and most are highly branched. Fleabane are distributed across most continents, growing in dry mountainous and grassland habitats, most species are found in North America. They grow well in full sun or partial shade, often springing up from seed in paving cracks. They can provide cheerful colour to any garden space. Foliage is most often lance or spoon-shaped and flowers may be single or semi-double and are usually produced in corymbs. Coloured petal rays range from white, orange and yellow to pink, purple and blue, always with a yellow or orange disc centre, although some species lack ray flowers completely. Erigeron plants are often used in herbaceous borders, coastal settings and rock gardens, larger Erigeron species make good cut flowers (pick when flowers fully open). Deadhead regularly to encourage new blooms.
