More Details

An enduring old variety, long-lived and vigorous, growing up to 70cm tall with narrowly oval, grey-green leaves. This cultivar produces a mass of summer flowers with very pale pink, slender rays, surrounding small, yellow centres. If you see a pale blue-grey erigeron in a garden it's likely to be 'Quakeress', named because the colour was considered to be the shade of grey worn by Quaker women.
