Boltonia asteroides 'Snowbank' has masses of white, fine-petaled, daisy-like blooms in late summer to early fall. This tall, generally upright perennial plant is great for the back of a sunny border and great for meadow plantings. It may be cut back to 1/3 of its size early in the season to keep it shorter. Remove spent blooms on this plant to reduce self-sowing.
Boltonia asteroides is a perennial that is native to the North American central plains from Canada down to Texas and eastward. It is naturally found in bottomlands, thickets, wet meadows and prairies, marshes and other wet areas, but it is quite happy in drier locations.
Also called False Aster, Boltonia asteroides 'Snowbank' prefers full sun, tolerates heat, humidity, and drought, and can handle clay soils and moist conditions. Boltonia 'Snowbank' readily self-sows.
