This floriferous eastern American native was named after the British botanist, James Bolton, and for its butterfly-beguiling Aster-like blooms. Tolerant of clay soil and occasional dry conditions, Boltonia asteroides promotes an easy-to-grow pest-free habit with showy blooms that can grace native plantings or perennial borders.

Tootling the moist prairies, meadows and stream banks of eastern and central North America, this amenable Aster-like perennial rallies countless petite pale pink daisies with yellow eyes. Late summer finds upright branching stems and alternate linear grayish green leaves completely blanketed by the upbeat fine-rayed flowers that populate loose panicles. A winsome butterfly minion, ‘Pink Beauty’s slow-spreading rhizomes tolerate clay, but prefer good drainage, while a late spring lop plus somewhat drier soil will ensure stronger upstanding stems.
