Description

Erigeron 'Sea of Blossom' is a delightful addition to any garden, earning its place in our range for its abundant blooms. This semi-evergreen perennial is known for its profusion of daisy-like flowers in a soft lavender-pink hue, which bloom from April to September, creating a sea of colour throughout the season. Standing at about 30 cm in height, 'Sea of Blossom' forms a neat, compact mound that is perfect for adding texture and colour to borders, rock gardens, and containers. Its long flowering period and low-maintenance nature make it a versatile choice for various garden styles, from traditional cottage gardens to modern urban spaces. This plant is also a favourite for coastal gardens due to its resilience and ability to thrive in well-drained soil. Our horticultural team loves 'Sea of Blossom' for its ability to attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, enhancing the biodiversity of your garden. Its compact size and fast growth make it an excellent ground cover option, filling gaps with ease and adding a soft, airy feel to garden beds. 'Sea of Blossom' thrives in full sun to partial shade and is drought-tolerant once established, making it suitable for gardens with varying water availability. This plant's robust nature and beautiful blooms ensure it provides continuous interest, making it a must-have for any gardener looking to create a vibrant and lively outdoor space.

Planting Conditions

Erigeron 'Sea of Blossom' thrives in full sun to partial shade, adapting well to various lighting conditions. It prefers well-drained soil but can tolerate different soil types, including sandy or clay soils. When planting, ensure the soil is prepared by incorporating organic matter to enhance its fertility and drainage. Dig a hole slightly larger than the plant's root ball and place it at the same depth as it was in the nursery container. Gently back-fill the hole, firming the soil around the roots. Water thoroughly after planting to settle the soil. With these planting conditions, your 'Sea of Blossom' will flourish.

Watering & Feeding

To keep Erigeron 'Sea of Blossom' healthy and vibrant, provide it with regular watering to maintain slightly moist soil. Water deeply, allowing the water to penetrate the root zone, and then allow the top layer of soil to dry out slightly before watering again. Avoid over-watering, as it can lead to root rot. In terms of feeding, apply a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in early Spring to promote healthy growth. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for dosage and application. Additionally, incorporating organic matter into the soil during planting will provide some natural nutrients.

General Care

Erigeron 'Sea of Blossom' is a low-maintenance plant that requires minimal care to thrive. Regular deadheading of spent blooms will promote continuous flowering and keep the plant looking tidy. Remove any damaged or yellowing foliage to maintain its overall health and appearance. While 'Sea of Blossom' is generally resistant to pests and diseases, monitor the plant for any signs of infestation or disease, and take appropriate action if necessary. In colder regions, provide a layer of mulch around the base of the plant in late Autumn to protect it during Winter. With these simple care practices, your 'Sea of Blossom' will reward you with a spectacular display of blooms season after season.
