Erigeron annuus, mid October. Common names include Tall fleabane, Annual fleabane  <br />
and Daisy fleabane. "A tall, upright annual, lightly covered throughout in small white hairs, with alternating elliptical leaves. The flowering stems have crowded terminal clusters of white daisies, each about 1.5cm wide, consisting of masses of thin white ray florets surrounding a central yellow disc...The flowers are insignificant at the outset but make up for it in sheer numbers, providing a profusion of white for an exceptionally long period [July-November]. Self sows freely when tufts of seed are carried by the wind." [Fergus Garrett, Great Dixter, Nurseryman's Favourites, Gardens Illustrated magazine, September 2013]
