Boltonia General Information

Boltonia are North American natives. Very upright habit never needs staking. Prolific fall flowering with finely, rayed daisy flowers resemble Asters. One plant makes a grand show and a row of them could be used as a flowering hedge.

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.
