    1. Yes, they do look lovely in this large planting! They’re a wonderful plant in every way, easy to grow, maintain, propagate, and dense enough to suppress weeds quite well. And you can’t beat the flowers, they put on such a show! You’re right, ‘gorgeous’ does them justice ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. They are lovely flowers Pete and can be grown in an outdoor pot or as a garden edge like a wee hedge (I did this between a herb garden and driveway area). Very easy to grow and maintain. Easy to propagate – just put a piece in the soil, initially keep watered, and off they go! Get dense enough to keep weed growth down. Perfect plant! I passed on your “Well done” to Nigel – thank you Pete!

    1. Thank you Ellen, they do look very pretty with all their flowers and they look lovely en masse in this situation. I’ve also grown them in an outdoor pot, and as a garden edge like a little hedge, and they did well in all situations. Its a great plant!

    1. Nigel was happy when I passed on your comment Anita thank you! I grew Erigeron in a round outdoor plastic pot and they did very well and flowered beautifully. Then I used them as an edge to a herb garden, a separation between garden and driveway. They were like a little hedge and worked wonderfully, dense enough to smother most weed growth; and looked wonderful when in flower.

  1. I recently bought and planted some of these, but they havenโ€™t flowered yet, so Iโ€™m happy to see your photo. Theyโ€™re more attractive than the more common โ€˜fleabaneโ€™ which I have in my garden also.

    1. When we last had a garden I planted them in a single row where I needed an edge between a herb garden and the driveway area. They grew and made a nice dense edge, and flowered beautifully as well. I was very impressed with how they performed, they were just perfect really ๐Ÿ™‚
