Santa Barbara Daisy

Erigeron karvinskianus

Santa Barbara Daisy, often called Mexican Fleabane, is a dainty trailing perennial ground cover with prolific white and pink flowers.  The blooms are quite long lasting as they appear in Spring and will flower until Fall given the right conditions. It will get 2' tall by 4 to 5' wide.  Erigeron karvinskianus prefers cool sun to part shade in hotter climates and is actually quite drought tolerant once established.  It will attract butterflies and beneficial garden insects.  Erigeron karvinskianus will also tolerate clay soils and seraside/coastal conditions.  It's also great for cascading over wall, hanging planters, and down slopes.  Cut back nearly to the ground occasionally to keep new growth coming back nice and tight.  Hardy to about 20 deg. F.  Native to Mexico.  USDA Zones 7-11.
