Plant Description

‘Georgia Pancake’ is a dwarf and prostrate form of the southeastern native fringed bluestar that occurs on well drained, sandy loam or limestone throughout its range. This little guy forms nearly flat mounds of spreading stems that are covered with chartreuse, needle-like leaves that turn golden yellow in the fall. The effect is kind of fuzzy and soft. Small balls of very light blue flowers occur in late spring. Grow this one in full sun and average to very well drained soil. Try it in front of taller coneflowers, asters, ‘Ryan’s Pink’ mums, muhly grass, or catmint to create a perfect fall garden. New this year!
