Erigeron Azure Fairy is an improved mauve flowering cultivar of the more common Erigeron (Dainty or Seaside Daisy) varieties. Erigeron Azure Fairy, like all Erigeron varieties is suitable for pots, borders, rockeries and other garden situations, particularly in dry areas where it may be difficult to establish other plants with higher water requirements. Erigeron varieties are also at least moderately tolerant of coastal environments and require very little maintenance (generally a post-flowering light trim will encourage another extensive burst of flowers).
Erigeron Azure Fairy produces an abundance of stunning pure mauve flowers with yellow centres, on healthy plants with fine and hardy foliage. Erigeron Azure Fairy is a substantially improved selection of the wild species ensuring it is a much more spectacular and reliable performer resulting in an abundance of large bright flowers on healthy plants, throughout the warmer months, generally from Spring through to Autumn. Erigeron Azure Fairy is an easy to grow garden plant that does not require any maintenance, will tolerate soils with generally poor nutrition and is resistant to most common garden pests and diseases.
