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.

These were planted in your metal containers, standing on gravel, and they looked wonderful. Am about to order more.

I used this under a 200 year old olive tree planted amongst gravel. Looks absolutely stunning, very fast growing.

One of my all-time favourites

I bought this plant as a filler for a difficult, shady bed. It thrived so successfully, producing thick foliage covered with little white flowers and tumbling over the edge, that I was soon buying more to go in plant pots and other beds. I was more than happy after a whole summer of flowering, but in fact the last flowers disappeared in February, having survived the snow and the whole winter. Will definitely buy again.

Very pleased with this product.

The plants have been established among stones in a rockery and at the front of a bed bordered by a low wall. Here they are thriving and have survived heavy rain on occasion and even 8 inches of snow for a couple of days. Very happy with them.

Ever hopeful

Beautiful, hardy plants

These plants were beautiful from early to late summer, and hardy through winter. They have grown a good amount since I purchased them, and look like they will do well this coming year as well. So pleased with these little plants. They are beautiful in borders and patio pots.

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.
