This is a great plant for adding color to the fall garden. Related to Asters, Boltonias are covered with 3/4 inch aster-like flowers so thickly you can hardly see into the plant. 'Snowbank' may be 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.
