Botanical Name

ERIGERON 'Prosperity'

Plant Common Name

Fleabane, Prosperity Fleabane

General Description

Hybrid fleabane ‘Prosperity’ is a long-blooming, clump-forming perennial which covers itself with pale lavender-blue, semi-double daisies from late spring to midsummer. Highly attractive to butterflies, the yellow-centered flowers are carried on tall, slender stems, and somewhat resemble asters.

This easy to grow perennial prefers full sun and moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Light afternoon shade may be beneficial where summers are very hot. Removal of spent flowering stems keeps the plants looking neat, and may extend the flowering period. Avoid locations with heavy winter moisture.

Maturing to form airy drifts of dainty flowers, ‘Prosperity’ is an excellent choice for a sunny spot near the front of a mixed border, and also performs well in rock gardens or containers. If cut when fully open, its blooms are lovely and long-lasting in the vase.
