Erigeron karvinskianus (Mexican Daisy) is a graceful, trailing, woody-based perennial noted for its endless production of small daisies almost year-round. Opening white, the delicate flowers turn soft pink, fade to purple and attract butterflies and bees. Hugging the ground, this charming groundcover forms a low mound of narrow, hairy, gray-green leaves. Its beautiful cascading habit makes it ideal for raised beds, walls, hanging baskets or containers.
