Fleabane Daisy, Green Rabbit bush (Erigeron divergens)

Britton, N.L., and A. Brown. 1913. Illustrated flora of the northern states and Canada. Vol. 3: 439.

Cultural Practices:
The Erigeron divergens like a moderately fertile well drained soil. Place the young Fleabane Daisies plants 3 feet apart. Cut the older plants back to the ground in late winter to keep them compact.

Blooming Habits:
The fleabane daisy is covered with a mass of purple and white, daisy-like flowers in February to October. Some varieties exist with white flowers. All the varieties are good as cut flowers
