A Week of Flowers

Day Two 23 November 2020

A gentle offering for the second day of Cathy’s Week of Flowers
Please have a look at the other contributions (links on Cathy’s blog: Words and Herbs) and start the week with a smile.

Beach Aster Erigerion glaucus

Beach Aster or Seaside Fleabane is the perfect plant for my rock and gravel garden. Flowering prolifically from May to October it attracts bumblebees, butterflies and hoverflies. This simple daisy is a native of coastal California and Oregon, but it thrives in my island garden.

  1. What a pretty daisy. I don’t think I have seen a Fleabane that colour before. 😃 We have the white Erigeron annuus here, which is a welcome weed as it also flowers non-stop until November. Have a good day Christine!

  2. Just as pretty as my bellis, and possibly prettier than the white erigeron. I am finally getting seedlings of the latter popping up here now!

    • It self-seeds all over the place, but I can live with that as it is such an insect friendly plant. Let me know if you would like some plants.

      • I would be quite happy to receive some, Christine – thank you so much 😊

        • When, if, it stops raining, I’ll pot some up for you and forward when I’m sure that they’re established.

          • Thank you, that would be kind

          • If I forget, please remind me

          • 👍

  3. It sounds like you have the perfect setting for these pretty blooms. Thank you for sharing.

    • Always delighted to share my eccentric garden. I’ve just had a peep over the garden fence – what a lovely garden you have, full of all the plants I can’t grow here.

  4. A lovely share – I can almost hear the buzzing of bees!

  5. That’s good to see.. I bought one this year. Still very small but next year I’m hoping for better things!

    • I’m sure it will become a veritable triffid!

  6. I love any sort of Erigeron. Properly pretty

  7. Another little sweetie – daisies specialise in making me smile!
