Buy Erigeron karvinskianus Mexican fleablane (syn. Profusion ): Daisy like flowers turn from white to pink

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of Growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of small daisies, emerging white, then turning pink, with yellow centres, give this plant an unusual, two-tone effect. It has a long flowering period, from May to October, and is amazingly versatile, being low-growing, happy in sun or partial shade and thriving in any well-drained soil. It's also tolerant of coastal conditions. Try it as an edging plant in a mixed border, alongside paths, in a gravel garden, spilling over walls, or planted in the cracks in paving. Bees and butterflies love all erigerons, so they make a wonderful addition to a wildlife garden, too.

  • Garden care: Trouble free. Avoid excessive winter wet and trim lanky stems in autumn.

I love the these daisy flowers they flower all summer and well into autumn, very easy to grow and you can let them self seed all over the garden.

Whether planted in a pot or at the boarder of a flower bed it's a plant of unfailing vigorous growth and great beauty. Not to be missed in any garden!

The plants are not flowering as yet, but they are spreading, which is one of the things I hoped for. I probably planted them in the wrong place, but I wanted some colour in our recently re-established front garden (it had previously just been a concrete slab to park a car on) and I really liked the look of these. Fingers-crossed for an explosion of colour come June.

Great little star

Fantastic for shady areas where little will grow, repeat flowering and evergreen if protected or sheltered.

Gorgeous country look

Lovely country look. It lasted well all summer and I'm hoping it will come back to life this Speing. I am a terrible gardener and I managed to keep it alive! I bought 6 small pots then put it in lots of different planters around the garden. It's very pretty! This Summer I will attempt to spread it further by breaking a bit off and planting it in another patch.

We have very heavy clay soil and these are growing great guns. A Nice little filler for all those awkward nooks and crannies!

Hello, You most certainly can - just make sure it gets loads of sun and does not get too dry.

When to plant Sarcococca confusa Hello, I am thinking of buying the above shrub, can you please tell me when is it the best time to plant it? I live in Cumbria which is currently still very cold with intermittent frosts. Thanks

Jackie Kerr

Hello There, These plants have been grown outside and as they are fully hardy they should be planted out as soon as the ground is not frozen. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Hello, I have just taken delivery today of my last order,-a Sarococca and 2 x Erigeron karvinskianus. Can I check with you where they have been stored to date? Have they been kept outside or in an unheated green house etc... I am trying to ascertain whether I can keep them outside until planting now? It is only February and there is still ice and snow forecast here in the next week or so. Thanks

Jackie Kerr

Hello There, These plants are fully hardy so can be planted out at any time of the year as long as the ground isn't frozen. The ideal time for planting however is spring or autumn. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

When is the best time to plant the border on a budget? We are intrested in purchasing the plants suggested on 'money's tight' pre-planned border. Can you suggest when it is best to plant these plants?

sarah keeling

As a rule hardy plants grown in containers (such as the majority of the ones we sell), can be planted at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. The best times to plant however are in the autumn when the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth but the plant isn't in active growth, or in spring before the temperatures start to rise. You can also plant in mid summer as long as you make sure the plants are kept well watered.
