Erigeron karvinskianus, originating in Central America, naturalized itself as a native species several decades ago and inhabits cliffs or wastelands, creeping in clusters on the ground approximately 50cm long. The leaves are of phyllotaxis, in the shape of a linear to lanceolate on the upper parts, and the lower parts are palmately cleft in three. The branch tops are 1.5-2cm across white flower heads that gradually become pale red-purple. So, the colonies are a mix of white and pale red-purple flowers. Bloom time: May-November.
