Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
BOLTONIA asteroides var. latisquama
This variety of white doll’s daisy has larger daisies and tends to be shorter than the standard species. It is a large North American perennial that naturally inhabits the sunny moist prairies and old fields of the central and northeastern United States.
White doll’s daisy has a tall, upright, bushy habit. It is clump-forming and spreads slowly via rhizomes. Its stems are lined with lance-shaped leaves that are deep green to gray-green. In midsummer to fall its stems become topped with many delicate yellow-centered daisies that may be white, lilac or lavender-pink. These appear in multitude and attract many pollinators such as butterflies and bees.
Full sun is best for this tough and adaptable perennial. It can withstand many soil types, even poor soils, but grows best in average fertile soil with even moisture and good drainage. Plants tend to flop, especially when planted in partial sun, and often require staking.
This native is ideal for large borders, wildflower and butterfly gardens. Its blooms are good for cutting too.
