Erigeron

Fleabane

With a carefree guise that belies their stalwart nature, Erigeron promises to embellish any little spot: cracks and crevices, window boxes, between paving stones or a border’s foreground. Happiest in well draining, even sandy soils, these vigorous, no-nonsense perennials parade daisylike blooms for months on end and can easily endure dry conditions.

<i>Erigeron compositus</i> var. <i>discoideus</i>

Beloved by bees and butterflies, ebullient narrow-rayed daises with sunny yellow eyes prance above a bright gray-green mound of filigree-like foliage. Tightly packed petals, ranging in colors from soft pink to lavender blue, distinguish the petite blooms. A no nonsense diminutive North American native that belies its delicate-looking demeanor, this darling Fleabane is well-suited for alpine gardens, edging a pathway or adorning containers. It can endure poor dry abodes, demands sharp draining soil, doesn’t interest the deer and is most effective when planted en masse.

Blooms May—June.

Size: 4" high x 8" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

Bart O’Brien at California’s Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden selected this exceptional California native for its extra large 3 in. wide lavender daisies and trim compact evergreen mound. Enticing finches, butterflies and other plant lovers, dozens of sprightly greenish golden-eyed flowers unfurl from spring through summer above low growing leaves that can handle coastal front lines. Enriched soil, occasional deadheading, partial shade if planted inland plus a yearly cut back ensure ‘Bountiful’s abundant good looks.

Blooms May–October

Size: 6" – 12" high x 12" – 18" wide.

Hardy to zone 7.

<i>Erigeron glaucus</i> ‘Ron’s Pink’

Here’s a perennial we’ve been waiting for: a pink flowering, compact selection of our native seaside daisy. Its upbeat, 2 in. wide daisies feature crowded delicate rays centered with large yellow eyes. This Ron Lutsko discovery hosts droves of blooms above a lush and tidy, bluish green basal rosette. Chipper yet tough, evergreen ‘Ron’s Pink’ maintains its composure through salt spray, howling winds and coastal drought.

Blooms May–November.

Size: 6" – 12" high x 12" wide.

Zone 8/9.

Erigeron glaucus ‘Sea Breeze’ (P-1577)

Each $8.00

AVAILABLE APRIL 2019

<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)

Blooms May – October.

Size: 6" – 12" high x 12" – 18" wide.

Hardy to zone 7.

<i>Erigeron</i> x <i>moerheimii</i>

This low growing Erigeron is a marathon bloomer with a tenacious mettle and charm to spare. Thin-rayed, 1 in. wide soft pink daisies produce a bountiful, nearly year round display that almost veils the sprightly bundle of slender wiry stems and small narrow green leaves.

Rumored to be from the Royal Moerheim, a Dutch Nursery founded in 1888 and distinguished for its ‘Natural Style’ plants, Erigeron x moerheimii resembles Erigeron karvinskianus, but is more compact and doesn’t reseed. It can be enjoyed spilling over a wall or softening steps and pathways.

Blooms April – October.

Size: 12" – 2' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 8.

An ebullient bevy of semidouble, narrow-rayed lavender-hued daisies with sun-kissed centers floats all summer long on strong stems. Yielding a reliable bushy green clump and fantastic good-sized cut flowers to boot, ‘Azure Fairy’s pixie-like charm belies its adaptable peppy habit, which looks best en masse and abides clay or sandy soil.

Blooms June–August

Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 3.

In an ebullient display, ‘Pink Jewel’s thin, closely set orchid-pink petals abundantly converge around golden yellow centers. From a bed of round-tipped basal foliage, the sturdy, branching stems clad in smaller, lance-shaped leaves bolster 1 ½ in. wide, Aster-like blooms which are perfect for cutting. Extremely hardy and undemanding, this floriferous, western U.S. native can be partnered with yellow-flowering Achillea ‘Marmalade’ for a collage of cheerful flowers.

Blooms June–August

Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Zone 3/4.

Our Featured Plant: Geranium nodosum ‘Clos du Coudray’

Gorgeous Geraniums, Long-lasting summer flowers, Saturday Strolls!

Gorgeous Geraniums!

True Geraniums are sturdy yet refined, with 5-petaled flowers borne on dainty stems above attractive, palmately divided leaves. Their spectrum of colors, from cool to electric, is rivaled only by their ability to create soft mounds and flowing carpets of lush foliage in ordinary garden soil. We plant an assortment of cultivars to always have some in bloom from spring to fall. Our hardy selections are easily grown and most will re-bloom after flowering if lightly trimmed. Be sure to browse our online selections.

Enjoy these blossoms all summer long….

Our newsletter features a diverse collection of long-blooming perennials and shrubs whose reliable flowers will grace your garden for months. These lovely blooms unfurl at the beginning of summer and continue flowering through August or September. Offering unique hues, they populate airy sprays, tall spires, blowsy flower heads or bold verticillasters. We hope you’ll find these long-bloomers as delightful as we do. 

Happy digging and happy summer from all us Digging Dog Plant Wranglers!
