1 to 2 feet.
Flowers chiefly of light blue and mauve, June
An easily-grown border plant, resembling a Michaelmas
Daisy, with single flowers having a yellow
centre surrounded by many narrow petals.
The blue-flowered kinds are Erigeron superbus
and Erigeron speciosus; in Erigeron aurantiacus
the petals are orange-yellow, and in Erigeron
Coulteri they are white.
The Erigerons require the simplest of border culture;
plants may be put in their positions from autumn
to early spring.
Seedlings may be raised with little trouble by
sowing about April in boxes of light soil, pricking
out the plants in nursery-beds in good time.
Though chiefly used as a border plant, the Erigeron
(in the blue shades at least) looks very well
in a mass of a score or so of plants together.
