The Erigeron genus contains nearly four hundred flowers, in appearance somewhere between a daisy and an aster. The name Erigeron means “old man,” referring to the white hair on the seed heads. The common name “Fleabane” comes from the medieval practice of using these dried flowers to repel fleas. This Fleabane Daisy was first discovered in the state of California around 1830 by English botanist David Douglas, who made several trips of exploration to the United States. Douglas also introduced such species as the Ponderosa Pine, Sitka Spruce, and Noble Fir; the common name of Douglas Fir honors his legacy. The Royal Horticultural Society, who commissioned these botanical explorations, first cultivated this daisy as a garden plant.
