Chuckeroon's Menton - Erigeron karvinskianus


A long name for this small daisy-like plant photographed by Chuckeroon. You see it everywhere in the south of France, tumbling out of walls and seeding very easily. It's a very useful plant to fill gaps in a garden but beware, it can take over.

  4. So that's what these are. I was just calling them small daisies, which I guess is correct, too.
