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 sites, even those with sandy soil, these vigorous, no-nonsense perennials parade daisy-like blooms for months on end and can easily withstand periodic dry spells.
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)
