BOLTONIA Asteroides Pink Beauty - Medium 3' - Plant 24" apart. Masses of starlike flowers atop sturdy plants beginning in late summer and continuing until and after frost. Very upright, never needs staking. Any soil, even dry with full sun. One plant makes a grand show, and a row of them could be used as a flowering hedge. Airy pink flowers on a broader plant Excellent cut flower.
