Plant Type: Perennials

Zillions of lacy white daisies top long stems of fine-textured silver blue foliage in late summer and early fall. An undemanding native plant that is surprisingly tolerant of drought and flood.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Although it will certainly tolerate periods of drought, Boltonia prefers average to moist soil and will withstand periodic wet feet. Full sun is essential for maintaining an upright stature. Cut back in early to mid summer to achieve a less lanky habit.
