Erigeron pulchellus var. pulchellus 'Lynnhaven Carpet'

Robin's Platain

A dutiful, no-fuss native perennial great for naturalizing in less-than-ideal conditions! Erigeron pulchellus var. pulchellus ‘Lynnhaven Carpet’ is full-shade tolerant, able to form a dense mat of grey-green foliage topped by showy whitish-pink blooms with yellow centers in mid-May that are great for attracting springtime pollinators. However, it is not the flowers that make ‘Lynnhaven Carpet’ Robin’s plantain the favorite of Mid-Atlantic gardeners: it is, instead, its ability to spread as a low-growing, texturally interesting groundcover over notoriously difficult terrain. And that’s no exaggeration – naturally found in conditions ranging from grassy woodlands with shallow, rocky soils, to streambanks with medium soil moisture, Erigeron pulchellus var. pulchellus ‘Lynnhaven Carpet’ is highly adaptable to a wide variety of habitats. ‘Lynnhaven Carpet’ Robin’s plantain was discovered growing at a private residence near Virginia Beach, VA, named by horticulturist Charles Cresson for its location to the nearby Lynnhaven River.
