Boltonia asteroides (False Aster)
Boltonia asteroides, also known as False Aster, is a U.S. native perennial, growing from five to six feet in full sun and average, well-drained soil. Its ray flowers range from white, to lavender, to pink, and to even purple, with a yellow eye. This late summer/early fall bloomer is quite showy and if height is an issue, it can be cut back by 1/3 to keep it in check. Butterflies like this one. Zones 4-8. Quarts.
