Fleabane

Posted by

Erigeron annuus, fleabane, freely self-seeds but is easy to pull out where it's too abundant. With the wetter, cooler spring this year, the fleabane in the garden has grown more than 3 feet tall. When we first moved in, it appeared out of nowhere...and I let it grow to see what it would do. The wildflower was abundant and pleasing, so it stayed. Apparently the tiny pollinator in the middle of the picture likes it, too.

A beautiful composition. This is such a pretty flower and what a wonderful surprise. It is always fun to see what comes up in the spring. I like flowers that grow well. This seems to be one of them.

@Elaine Hancock: I like the surprises, too -- except for the tree seedlings that hide in our small yard until a shovel is required to remove them. Every year is different, for many of these plants that seed themselves. Makes gardens and gardening always interesting.
