|Erigeron glaucus is a tufted, perennial flowering daisy, to 12 inches tall, with succulent-looking stems. The leaves can be lance-shaped, obovate, or spoon-shaped. Semi-double flowers have narrow, thread-like ray florets. Summer flowers are 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches wide, with pale mauve rays and greenish-yellow centers, later turning brown. They prefer sandy soil and should be cut back after flowering to prolong the flowering time.
