Erigeron glaucus ‘Sea Breeze’

Erigeron

Fleabane

With a carefree guise that barely hints at their stalwart nature, Erigeron promises to embellish any little spot: cracks and crevices, window boxes, between paving stones or a border’s foreground. Content in well-draining, even sandy soil, these vigorous, no-nonsense perennials parade daisy-like blooms for months on end and can easily endure periodic dry spells.

<i>Erigeron glaucus</i> ‘Sea Breeze’

For its large and deeply colored daisies, its bounteous bloom and neat compact character, British nursery owner, Fred Yates, selected this outstanding, easy-to-grow Erigeron from a group of Erigeron glaucus seedlings. A low, dense evergreen mound of handsome, balsam-scented gray-green foliage gets buried under the nearly 2 in. wide lavender-pink flowers that are elevated on short steadfast stems and brightened by chartreuse and gold eyes.

An adorable yet resilient addition to a cottage garden, rockery, hillside or border’s front row, ‘Sea Breeze’ handles coastal living and some drought, but requires well draining soil and light shade where its hot. (pp#12,076)

Size: 6" – 12" high x 12" – 18" wide.
