Plant Description

The Boltonias are great plants for adding color to the fall garden. Related to Asters, they cover themselves with 3/4 inch aster-like flowers so thickly, you can hardly see into the plant. 'Pink Beauty' has soft pink flower heads on plants that grow up to 4 feet tall in ordinary to dry soil. It is very easy in full sun but will grow in light shade. Staking may be necessary in shade. Imagine this with Ironweed, Joe Pye Weed, and Blue Love Grass. It also makes a lovely cut flower for late summer and fall vases. Add some switchgrass for a soft and airy bouquet.
