This name translates as 'new snow in summer' and this effectively describes the soft, fluffy effect created by the fine, almost shredded appearance of this white, flushed pink daisy. Masses of large flowers with yellow centres appear from June through to October above clumps of grey-green leaves. It looks particularly good planted among other sun-loving summer flowers with a strong form, such as salvias and achilleas. Bees and butterflies love all erigerons, so they make a wonderful addition to a wildlife garden. Garden care: The plant may need staking. Cut back flowered stems to encourage a new flush of flowers. In autumn, cut to ground level. Lift and divide large clumps every second or third year, discarding the woody crowns.
