Seaside daisy(Erigeron glaucus) can be found along the coast from Cambria north to central Oregon, and just to be different also on the Channel Islands. Seaside daisy is usually found on clay ocean bluffs, in coastal ravines that face the ocean, under Monterey Pines (Pinus radiata)(if they're near the ocean) and mixed into coastal sage scrub. A great butterfly plant and provides a cool blue spot of color in a coastal garden. A bit of nature for a sunny perennial garden in San Francisco or part-shade garden in Los Angeles. Mix with monkey flowers, Stachys, Iris douglasiana or Salvia spathacea. Out of its range Seaside daisy likes a little extra water and hates dust. So, go out there and wet your whistle, while washing off the daises every couple of weeks and you'll both be happy.
