CARE
Care Best adapted to coastal conditions. In inland hot areas, will bloom profusely in spring but burn in summer. Needs occasional to regular summer irrigation. Thrives in rich soils, but can tolerate heavy clay. If plants get lanky, cut back 1 to 2 inches of stem in late fall. Deadhead to encourage continued bloom.
HISTORY
Lore The name for the genus Erigeron comes from the Greek words 'eri' meaning early or perhaps 'erio' meaning wooly and 'geron' meaning "old man" which alludes to the bristly or wooly seed heads.
