June – September.

Stokesia

Stokesia laevis ‘Alba’ full sun

Named to honor the 18th century taxonomist, Dr. Jonathan Stokes, Stokesia is beloved by butterflies, tolerates heat, and appreciates a well-drained, sandy loam with ample moisture and winter mulch in colder climates.

Parading its Cornflower-like snowy white blossoms, this perfect-for-cutting Stokesia casts crisp luminous accents wherever it’s planted. Launched from a deep green and evergreen rosette of lance-shaped alternate leaves on long petioles, the stiff upright multibranched stems give way to fluffy blooms described by two rows of dainty ray flowers that eventually flush a light pink. The outer petals are deeply cut and surround a prominent pale central disc of intricately arranged, narrow tubular petals.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 5.
