Erigeron Glaucus ‘Wayne Roderick’ is a perennial daisy native to California. Most Erigeron Glaucus selections grow best on the coast where the sun is cooler but this variety is considered more heat tolerant. Hopefully that quality will serve it well in our patio garden. We are fairly close to the coast but not enough that we are subject to a strong marine influence.

Wayne Roderick Seaside Daisy is a fast growing evergreen with a long blooming season. The foliage grows to about 1′ tall by 2′ wide and the flower stalks grow a little taller, topped by pretty lavender and yellow blooms. To encourage almost year-round blooming, all you need to do is water occasionally and remove any dead flowers (dead heading).

These plants are attractive to bees and butterflies.
