Erigeron glaucus White Lights ~ Seaside Daisy

Erigeron glaucus White Lights puts on a long lasting show Spring through Fall with its many petaled white flowers. The spent flowers can be a distraction in a fastidious garden, though they don't take that long to clean up. Erigeron White Lights grows to a foot tall and 1-2 feet wide but over time tends to die out in the center. By this time the various branches will usually be rooted and this just makes for easier dividing. The white flowers of Erigeron White Lights are a food source for the Painted Lady Butterfly, California Dogface Butterfly, Hedgerow Hairstreak, Gray Hairstreak, Great Purple Hairstreak, Cloudless Sulfur, Common Buckeye, White Checkered Skipper, Northern White Skipper, California Common Ringlet, Mormon Metalmark, and the White Line Sphinx Moth, and is a great addition to the butterfly garden. While the Seaside Daisy is drought hardy if planted in a protected location the plants look pretty scrappy if they don't get at least semi-regular water. Erigeron White Lights can be planted in full Sun near the coast, but prefers mid-day shade in inland gardens. Plants are Winter hardy into the low teens.
