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 ‘Snowbank’ (P-0038)
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.
Size: 4' 0" – 5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.
