Description :

A terrific ground cover for poor soils.

The Erigeron glaucus species, also known as beach aster, is native to the seaboard of California and Oregon (dunes, cliffs, beaches). The Erigeron glaucus 'Sea Breeze' cultivar was selected in 1992 by English nurseryman Frederick Yates (Congleton, Cheshire, England) from Erigeron glaucus seedlings.

And what a selection!

It is slow-growing, but over the years forms an attractive mat of blue-grey foliage, which looks like the leaves of a succulent. Flowering starts in late spring and lasts until the beginning of September: an avalanche of semi-double, lavender-pink, daisy-like blooms with a golden centre.

Given its origins, you will understand why Erigeron glaucus 'Sea Breeze' likes the seaside and some sunshine! We use it to decorate the slope of a bank, a twist in a rock garden or even as a flowery carpet by a cabin or a stand of cypress.

Grow in the sun (not scorching or otherwise in slight shade) in mainly sandy soil, slightly acid to alkaline. Resists summer drought once established.

You can grow it in pots as long as you remember to water it regularly and place it in a sheltered spot where it has enough room, as it likes to spread out! Height: 15 - 30 cm. Hardiness: -15°C

Maintenance:

In continental climates, trim any leaves damaged by frost at the end of winter.
