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.

  • Awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society
  • Grows up to 1-2 ft. tall (30-60 cm) and 3-5 ft. wide (90-150 cm). This plant can self-seed and become invasive if given rich soil and moderate water.
  • Easily grown in fertile, well-drained soils in full sun to light shade. Make sure the soil does not dry out in summer. Drought tolerant once established.
  • Excellent choice for beds and borders, Mediterranean gardens, coastal gardens, or rock gardens. Great for edging, as groundcover, and ideal for wall or paving crevices.
  • Virtually disease and pest free.
  • Propagate by seed in pots in a cold frame in spring
  • Deadhead to promote further flowering. Cut back to ground level in fall.
  • Native to Mexico
