Dainty daisy-like pale purple flowers rise from large leaves; a great native plant that attracts pollintators to the garden

Ornamental Features

Lynnhaven Carpet Fleabane has masses of beautiful lavender daisy flowers with yellow eyes at the ends of the stems from late spring to early summer, which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its large tomentose oval leaves remain green in color throughout the season.

Planting & Growing

Lynnhaven Carpet Fleabane will grow to be about 7 inches tall at maturity extending to 15 inches tall with the flowers, with a spread of 15 inches. Its foliage tends to remain low and dense right to the ground. The flower stalks can be weak and so it may require staking in exposed sites or excessively rich soils. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. As an herbaceous perennial, this plant will usually die back to the crown each winter, and will regrow from the base each spring. Be careful not to disturb the crown in late winter when it may not be readily seen!
