Erigeron glaucus 'Wayne Roderick'
When Dr. Gordon Frankie, bee expert of renown, dropped a few of these plants off at the nursery, & told us that it was a superb plant for attracting native bees, we set our busy-bee selves to work propagating more. After all, it's not just a long blooming, easy to grow, drought tolerant, super-tough perennial, & fabulous habitat plant, it also honors the legendary Californian plantsman Wayne Roderick, who passed away in 2003. This plant is just one of his innumerable contributions to botany & horticulture! Grows to 1' high, up to 3' wide, & bears its yellow-centered, lavender-blue blooms in every season but Winter. Some Summer water improves the plant's appearance. Tolerates clay, salt spray, wind, & deer. Attracts bees & butterflies!
