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.

Excellent product

They are great in a flower bed to fill some space. They definitely have thrived where there is sun. They add a splash of colour and fill a lot of space.

One of my all time favourite plants.

I have used this plant in pots, in a window box, edges of a border, it's so versatile. It has self seeded into cracks in my wall and in steps, long lasting and I love giving cuttings to friends so they can experience this wonderful little plant.

Love the daisy like flowers, the mixture of pinks and white through them. Only had them for one season but know they'll thrive. Had to have them after spying them in little wall crevices, and dotted about in pavement cracks.

GREAT PLANTS

5

These plants are brilliant; they gave a great display all through summer. I planted them with Geranium Rozanne in the garden, and I also planted them on their own in a container. They look a little bit untidy and ragged at the moment during the winter but I can forgive them that for the wonderful display during the spring and summer. They spread more than I expected so I plan to dig some out to plant elsewhere in the garden. Very easy to look after.

Dainty daisies

I purchased three of these Erigerons from Crocus in the spring and within a few weeks they produced a plethora of dainty daisies that are long lasting and that change colour during the course of time. The flowering period seems to be very extensive as they are still flowering now in early December.

Arrived in good condition and didn't stop flowering until December! Repeated flowering. Originally I planted it in a border but it quickly became smoothered by bigger plants. I moved it into a pot and it took off! Beautiful and low maintenance

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, 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 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

Crocus Helpdesk

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.
