Description From a botanical perspective the genus Erigeron (fleabanes) can be a bit tricky if you are attempting to identify to species, but for landscaping purposes the important thing to note is that fleabanes will thrive in a wide variety of garden types and habitats throughout the state. There are few Arizona gardens where fleabanes wouldn't be a good choice. Plants form a multiheaded bunch with thin stalks bearing white or pinkish daisy flowers with yellow centers. The blooms are attractive to butterflies, and spreading fleabane will readily reseed in garden beds.
