Erigeron speciosus ‘Azurfee’ / Fleabane Azure Fairy / Seeds

A lovely daisy-like plant with a long season of semi-double lavender flowers with yellow centres, blooming from June to August. A great border plant, flowering in the first year from early sowings.  Plants grow to a height of 45-60cm.  They make good cut flowers and will attract butterflies.


Erigeron ‘Azurfee’ does best in full sun and will grow well in a wide range of soils.

 

Pack of approx 100 seeds.  Sow in spring for first year flowering, or anytime for next year flowering.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Hardiness Hardy perennial (RHS Hardiness H4)
Flowers June to August
Height 45 - 60cm
Spread 30 - 45cm
Conditions  Full sun and a wide range of soils
Sow

Sow anytime (January to May is easiest) on the surface of a tray of moist seed compost and do not cover as light is needed for germination.  Keep at 15-20°C and seedlings emerge in 2-3 weeks.  Pot on and grow until the plants are ready to plant out after the last frost.   If sown in spring, plants flower 4-5 months from sowing.  If sown later in the year, protect plants over winter in a greenhouse or cold-frame and plant out after hardening off in spring.

Grow Deadhead plants to prolong flowering.  Trim back plants in autumn after they have finished flowering.
