Erigeron melanocephalus
Product Details
A small species from western USA. Foliage is mid green in colour and lance shaped, forming small rosettes. From these rosettes rise flower stems to around 20 cms or so, each carries a single daisy-like flower - clear white in colour with a disc of golden yellow in the centre. The rear of each flower is covered with black hairs which gives rise to the common name of Black Headed Fleabane. A typical daisy-like flowered plant which is ideal for the rock garden or trough - or the show bench!
