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. 'Snowbank' is perhaps the most widely grown kind. It is an improved form of the normally white flowering species, having more and larger flowers. 'Snowbank' has blue-green foliage, oblong 5 inch leaves, and strong erect stems growing to 4 feet that seldom need staking. It likes average to moist soil and full sun. 'Snowbank' makes a bold addition to the fall garden, and clumps enlarge quickly in good conditions.
