Beach Aster Wayne Roderick
Erigeron glaucus 'Wayne Roderick'
  
About Beach Aster Wayne Roderick (Erigeron glaucus 'Wayne Roderick') 6 Nurseries Carry This Plant Horticultural selection from Erigeron glaucus. This is a compact evergreen shrub with gorgeous lavender-purple flowers 1? diameter produced over an extended period. This useful, small daisy provides masses of flower color for mixed borders, rock gardens, coastal bluff gardens, containers or as a small scale groundcover. Dead head the spent flowers for best appearance and longer bloom. Provide some partial shade inland in the summer months. The butterflies will love you for providing this plant! There is some confusion between the 'Wayne Roderick' and 'WR' varieties of Beach Aster. We find that the 'WR' is lower growing with smaller, aster-like leaves and its flowers are held on longer stalks.
