Boltonia

Thousand-Flowered Aster

This floriferous eastern American native was named after the British botanist, James Bolton, and for its butterfly-beguiling Aster-like blooms. Tolerant of clay soil and occasional dry conditions, Boltonia asteroides promotes an easy-to-grow pest-free habit with showy blooms that can grace native plantings or perennial borders.

Boltonia asteroides ‘Pink Beauty’ (P-0037)

Each $9.00

AVAILABLE MAY 2022

Tootling the moist prairies, meadows and stream banks of eastern and central North America, this amenable Aster-like perennial rallies countless petite pale pink daisies with yellow eyes. Late summer finds upright branching stems and alternate linear grayish green leaves completely blanketed by the upbeat fine-rayed flowers that populate loose panicles. A winsome butterfly minion, ‘Pink Beauty’s slow-spreading rhizomes tolerate clay, but prefer good drainage, while a late spring lop plus somewhat drier soil will ensure stronger upstanding stems.

Blooms August–October

Size: 3' 0" – 5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

Boltonia asteroides ‘Snowbank’ (P-0038)

Each $9.00

AVAILABLE SPRING 2022

<i>Boltonia asteroides</i> ‘Snowbank’

This natural beauty sports a just-blown-in appearance, forming a big billowy mass of small white daisy-shaped flowers and tasteful, linear gray-green foliage. Innumerable yellow-eyed “asteroides” shoot straight up on tall sturdy stems that seldom need staking and assert a strong vertical element. Cold-hardy ‘Snowbank’ can be associated with Helenium ‘Potter’s Wheel’, Kniphofia ‘Tawny King’ and Helianthus ‘Dakota Queen’ for a big boisterous late season gathering.

Blooms August–October

Size: 4' 0" – 5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

Our feature plant: Primula vulgaris ssp. sibthorpii

Precious Primulas, Prized Pulmonarias and Fabulous Foliage!

Primulas offer elaborately-crafted colorful blooms in varied shapes,……

including draped bells, candelabras, drumsticks and pincushions. Many Primrose flowers  waft a delectable scent. Second-to-none for the dappled recesses of your garden, these easily grown, cold-hardy Primulas crave well-drained, humus-rich niches with adequate moisture and good air circulation. They can grace containers or be planted in swaths along shady walkways or in woodland gardens. Be sure to peruse our online Primulas.

Prized Pulmonarias……

One of the earliest perennials to bloom, you can be picking their enchanting urn-shaped flowers in February while the rest of the garden still slumbers. Many cultivars showcase an array of mercury-hued dapples, speckles and spots, while others sport solid pewter sheens or striking silver streaks. Easy-to-grow Pulmonarias prefer the lacy light of a woodland setting plus cool moist soil. Our newsletter also includes a handful of other shade-loving perennials that promise alluring foliage. Many of these perennials can be partnered with Pulmonarias for intriguing foliar contrast. You may wish to check out our online Pulmonaria offerings.

All of us plant and paper wranglers wish you good health and happy digging!
