Fleabane Daisy

Fleabane Daisy

Fleabane Daisy is a member of the aster family and has an erect, hairy stem that bears flowerheads full of white or pale pink ray flowers near the top of the plant. These flowers surround a yellow disk near and are held up by green sepals. The fragrance is mild but noticeable. In this, the plant is much like its cousin, the oxeye daisy, though the rays, which can number 50 to 120, are short compared to the diameter of the disk. It may also be mistaken for an aster, but it blooms earlier in the season. The toothed, slender, lance-shaped, hairy leaves are up to 5 inches long, and the plant increases from 1 to 5 feet tall. It gets its name from the belief that the dried flowers would chase the fleas out of a house. Benefits Of Fleabane Daisy Some botanists believe that the plant is an annual or biannual, which means it only lives for one or two seasons. Others believe it is a perennial. Even if the plant is an annual, it self-seeds so abundantly that many gardeners treat it like a perennial. When To Plant Fleabane Daisy It is best for hardiness zones 3 to 8 and flowers from June to October, though there may be a pause in blooming during the hottest part of the summer. The flowers lead to achenes, which have tufts that allow the wind to blow them away. Caring For Fleabane Daisy Fleabane daisy prefers well-drained loam and full sun, though it can do well in partial sun and is not particular about the kind of soil as long as it drains well. Some gardeners find that it flourishes in gravelly, clayey, alkaline soil. Seedlings should be thinned to about 18 inches apart, and the plants can be divided in spring. It is a beautiful plant for a meadow garden and attracts a host of pollinators.

Easy Groundcovers To Grow

Groundcovers are especially important in the late fall and early winter to provide a soft, leafy place to walk -- and they're also easy to grow! Whether you're looking for a low-maintenance ground cover like English ivy or vinca minor, or prefer something creeping, like Mitchella Repens or Ajuga Reptans. Keep your garden exciting and easy to maintain this winter with these tried-and-true plants.

English Ivy (Hedera helix) An Evergreen

The leaves of English ivy are lobed, shiny, and dark green. It proliferates, spreading by trailing stems that root where they touch the ground to form new plants. English ivy is best used at the base of walls and as a ground cover for shady areas. It's perfect for covering slopes or adding color to rock gardens or plantings along paths since it doesn't need much sun. Grow it in moist soil in a partially shaded spot for best results. Keep in mind that it can spread over a large area. Prune out the tips of vines to control growth.

Vinca minor (Periwinkle) a Flowering and Evergreen Plant

Vinca minor is a beautiful ground cover with dark green foliage and jagged edges. The plant has trailing stems that root along the ground's surface, forming new plants nearby. It is well known for its growth habit and ability to spread over a large area. If planted with other colorful plants, its dark green foliage can be used in a shady area, creating a cheerful color scheme. Vinca minima are also deer-resistant.

Mitchella Repens Is To Grow A Evergreen

Machella repens is a low-growing groundcover that spreads by rhizomes. The plant has narrow, creeping stems that root along the soil's surface, forming new plants nearby. The margins of the leaves are slightly undulating, and the basal area is slightly furrowed. You can use this ground cover in a shady area if you are looking for a light green covering while also providing some protection from heat, wind, and cold. It's also deer resistant.
