1 Gallon Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy


The Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy, scientifically known as Erigeron glaucus 'Sea Breeze', is a charming perennial plant native to the coastal regions of California and Oregon in the United States. Here are some key characteristics and care tips for the Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy:

1. Appearance: Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy is characterized by its delicate, daisy-like flowers that bloom profusely from spring to early summer. The flowers have lavender-blue petals with yellow centers, creating a cheerful and coastal-inspired appearance. 

2. Light: Plant Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy in full sun to part shade. It thrives in coastal climates with mild temperatures and can tolerate some afternoon sun but prefers protection from intense midday sun in hotter regions.

3. Watering: This plant prefers regular watering during its active growing season in spring and early summer. Once established, it has moderate drought tolerance but benefits from occasional deep watering during dry periods. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.

4. Soil: Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy thrives in well-draining soil with good organic content. It prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil pH. Adding compost or organic matter to the soil before planting can improve drainage and fertility.

5. Fertilizing: A light application of balanced fertilizer in early spring can help promote healthy growth and flowering. Avoid excessive fertilization, as Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy does not require heavy feeding.

6. Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming and maintain a tidy appearance. Cut back the plant lightly after the main flowering period to promote fresh growth and potential reblooming.

7. Winter Care: In cooler climates, Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy may benefit from a layer of mulch around the base in winter to protect the roots from frost. In mild coastal areas, it generally does not require special winter protection.

8. Propagation: Propagate Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy by division or from stem cuttings. Divide clumps in early spring or fall, ensuring each division has roots attached. Stem cuttings can be taken in spring or summer and rooted in a moist, well-draining growing medium.

9. Pests and Diseases: Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy is relatively resistant to pests and diseases. However, keep an eye out for aphids, snails, or slugs, especially in moist conditions. Treat any pest infestations promptly with appropriate methods.

Sea Breeze Seaside Daisy is a low-maintenance and beautiful addition to gardens, particularly those with coastal or Mediterranean-style landscapes. Its colorful blooms and adaptability to various growing conditions make it a favorite among gardeners looking to add a touch of seaside charm to their outdoor spaces.
