Erigeron x hybridus

Fleabane, Daisy Fleabane

This large group of perennials has showy, Daisy-like flowers with double rows of thread-like petals. Blooms in white, lavender and pink. Most need full sun and good drainage. Best in rock gardens. Some species are invasive. Fleabane tea is used by some Native Americans to relieve colds and stiffness in joints. Start by division or seed. Remove old flowers to lengthen bloom. Cut back after flowering to prevent legginess and to rejuvenate growth.
