Asteraceae (Compositae)
Ground covers, Perennials, Flowers

ERIGERON

Free-blooming plants with daisylike flowers. Similar to closely related Michaelmas daisy (Aster novi-belgii), except that erigeron’s flower heads have threadlike rays in two or more rows rather than broader rays in a single row. White, pink, lavender, or violet flowers, usually with yellow centers. Cut back after flowering to prolong bloom. Grow best in sandy soil. Rock garden species need especially fast drainage.

Erigeron karvinskianus

Native to Mexico. Graceful, trailing plant grows to 10–20 in. high, 3 ft. wide. Leaves are 1 in. long, often toothed at the tips. Dainty flower heads are 3/4 in. across with numerous white or pinkish rays. Rarely out of bloom. Use as a groundcover in garden beds or large containers, in rock gardens, in hanging baskets, or on dry walls. Drought-tolerant.
