Erigeron glaucus ‘Sea Breeze’

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 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.

Sterling plants showcasing white, silver and blue; Enliven a low-light spot!

Sterling plants showcasing white, silver and blue....

Blue is a powerful hue that proffers an air of refinement, sensibility and contemplation, while white and silver gleam with an energized lift. Ivory and blue blooms plus silver-laced leaves add cool sophisticated accents, offering welcome relief on a sweltering afternoon. These colors provide niches where the eye can rest, and when intermingled they create a crisp classic aspect. They can also be threaded through hot-themed plantings for a tone down effect!

Enliven a low-light spot...

Many gardeners are on the look out for plants that can tolerate some dappled light or actually flourish in shady recesses. Chosen either for their commanding foliage or enticing flowers, these diverse offerings promise to enliven just about any low-light garden setting.

Happy Digging!
