not as pictured! Review by Amanda Galbavi - Howell, MI
Posted on 2014-08-11 09:34:20

I did not like this daisy, it grew very well for me but the flowers were a pinkish purple and not at all blue as in the picture. I do have it planted near an evergreen so am thinking maybe the needles affect the color like snowball bushes, but would have wanted this info provided when I bought the plant. I am giving it three stars because it survived the -40 "polar vortex" last winter so deserves some props!




Disapointed Review by Linda Cogis - Iron Station, NC

I gave it a 2 because they did live and bloom but very disappointing. The picture showed a big blue daisy, mine are lavender, and tiny blooms, looks more like a wild weed daisy. Will probably pull mine up.

Planted them in the spring and they grew well; but no they are not blue. (I wonder if they'll turn blue by adding aluminum to soil like with Hydrangeas?) This is their first MN winter so I'm hoping they come up in the spring!




Pretty!! Review by Cheryl - Monroe, WA

I gave a 4 because as others stated, these are not blue. Mine are a purple tone. I am happy with it though!! It has grown so much since planting. It is about knee high in it's first year in the ground!

I ordered these last year. They were very small the first year and I didn't think they were going to live but this year they came up and are blooming and about knee height. The blooms are not blue like the picture but a pink-light purple color.

Planted these out in Feb. this year. They are starting to look respectable now. They like to be moist but not wet. This is a bit tricky in the Zone 9. Looks like it will bloom soon.

The Blue Fringe Daisy (erigeron speciosus) is an eye-catching herbaceous perennial that no garden should be without. The foliage includes hardy basal leaves near the base of the plant, as well as lance-shaped stem plants. The beautiful flowers on this blue daisy plant feature fine, delicate petals whorled around a golden center. The bold golden center creates a sharp contrast with the soft blue to purple shade of the frilly flower petals for a distinct color palette. With unique, eye-popping colors, they're a wonderful complement to many other plant and flower varieties.

To plant, the Blue Fringe Daisy should be put at the same depth as it is in the container, and in an area with partial shade or full sun exposure. The soil should be well-drained and lightly to moderately fertilized, while sandy soil works well as well. The plant can be pruned to maintain tidiness by cutting back spent flower stems. With a moderate growth rate, this perennial will bloom throughout the midsummer and grow to a height of about 18 to 24 inches with an 18 to 24 inch spread. The plant grows in a nice clump great for landscape needs and will form colonies. When the rosettes begin to overlap the plants should be divided.
