Boltonia General Information:

Boltonia are North American natives. Very upright habit never needs staking. Prolific fall flowering with finely, rayed daisy flowers that resemble Asters. Any soil, even dry with full sun.

Boltonia Plant Care:

Can be pinched like mums. Plants come from the ground and reach full height each year. Entire top can be removed in spring. Low maintenance, problem free. Divide in spring every 3 years or so or as needed to control spread. Masses of fully rooted plantlets grow around the parent plant and can be teased out of clump and replanted.
