Pink Santa Barbara Daisy
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.
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.
