Erigeron karvinskianus, Mexican fleabane. Masses of small daisies, emerging white, then turning pink, with yellow centres, give this plant an unusual, two-tone effect. It has a long flowering period, from May to October, and is amazingly versatile, being low-growing, happy in sun or partial shade and thriving in any well-drained soil. Bees and butterflies love all erigerons, so they make a wonderful addition to a wildlife garden, too.
