    OK, I have happily squinted my eyes in order not to see the non- Bellislike leaves and called it a giant Bellis. Then I decided it's a Fleabane even though it's way too fleshy and rampant for that.

    Can you please id this? It's evergreen, rampant, the stems are fleshy, pencil-thick and it flowers most of the summer.

    Thanks!

    Hi @Selleri , that's a Bellis Perennis. A cultivated form of the common Lawn Daisy.

    I have three Erigerons that look just like yours. I think they are Pink Azure, but not sure without finding the plant label. There is a purple variety too. But @KFF is probably right.

    My vote goes to Erigeron.
    Below is Erigeron glaucus Sea Breeze
