|Erigeron glaucus 'Wayne Roderick' in my garden|
I have now grown this plant for two years, and I find it lives up to that hype. If the flowers are deadheaded it blooms all summer. It's evergreen base stays nice and neat all year round. Its flowers, while not the stars of the garden, are very pleasing secondary players in the garden, mixing well with other plants and colors. In my previous garden I had grown an erigeron that I have now forgetten the name of. It was not this one, though, and I concluded then that it was too weedy. For that reason I had steered clear of erigerons until now. 'Wayne Roderick' has made me change my mind about this group of plants, and I may grow some others in the future. One is particular that I am looking at is Erigeron speciosus 'Darkest of All'. This is a form of Pacific Northwest native with darker purple flowers.
