Height Light
36 - 48 in. Sun Fall White 3 - 7

This small genus of the Aster family is easy to grow in average garden soil and will reward you with masses of flowers in the fall.  Best in mass planting or a perennial hedge. Foliage is an attractive blue-green. Naturalized areas, cottage gardens or native plant gardens. May be used in border backgrounds, however species plants are somewhat weedy.


Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soils including moderately dry ones. Plants grown in part shade or in rich, moist soils tend to flop and need support. Plants grown in drier soils will grow shorter, but often less vigorously with inferior flowering. If support becomes an issue, plant stems may be pinched or cut back by 1/3, in somewhat the same way as with many asters, in late spring to early summer to reduce plant height and minimize support needs. Slowly spreads by creeping rhizomes.
