Common fleabane

£3.00£5.70

The common fleabane has a yellow daisy-like flower and is at home in a damp ditch or damp meadow. It is great to sit on the edge of a wildlife pond, alongside other marginals such as Purple loosestrife or Ragged robin, and will establish well in most soils. It spreads by both seed and underground rhizomes, but if the clump becomes too large, it can easily be separated and transferred to other areas of the garden.
