Erigeron Groundcover Seed
Erigeron (Erigeron Karvinskianus Profusion) - Erigeron seeds easily grow a lovely yet hardy perennial. Also known as Santa Barbara Daisy and Mexican Daisy, this is a versatile perennial that performs well in low and high deserts. It produces a profusion of small daisy-like white flowers that turn pink and lilac in color as they age. It has bright green, fine textured foliage that fits well into lush landscapes. Erigeron is considered to make a good ground cover plant as it spreads rapidly and only reaches 8 inches tall by 24 inches wide. Erigeron is excellent cascading down banks or rock walls, in containers, or as edging. Part shade is recommended in hot locations, but it can handle full sun at higher elevations. Establishing easily from flower seeds, Erigeron Karvinskianus Profusion, a cultivar of a Mexican species, is a heavy bloomer, with flowers starting in June and ending in October. In low deserts the flower production is heaviest in the spring and fall, while summer color is the norm in colder climates.
Sow Erigeron flower seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before last frost. Use sterile starter mix and sow the flower seeds onto the mix. Because Erigeron needs moderate to ample irrigation, it is most suited to oasis zones. Erigeron Karvinskianus Profusion can be cut back in the winter to remove any scruffy foliage. If ample water is available, this plant can re-seed in the landscape.
