It has tufts of hairy grey-green leaves with large solitary yellow daisy-like flower heads to 2.5 cm (0.98 in) wide, appearing in summer.[5][6][7][8] The specific epithet aureus means "golden yellow".[9] In nature it inhabits ridges, crevices and rocky slopes,[3][6] and is suitable for cultivation in a rockery, wall or similar sunny, well-drained site. The cultivar 'Canary Bird', longer-lived than wild populations of the species, has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[10] References[edit] ^ Tropicos, Erigeron aureus Greene ^ The Plant List, Erigeron aureus Greene ^ a b Sullivan, Steven.
