Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
James H. Schutte
Aspen fleabane is a clump-forming, herbaceous species native to the northwestern United States and Canada. This perennial is valued for its showy summer display of lavender to purple, yellow-centered daisies. The flowers bloom on tall, slender stems rising from low clumps of lance- or spoon-shaped foliage, and are attractive to butterflies. This species has yielded many cultivars, including those with double or more deeply colored flowers.
Easy to grow, this perennial prefers full sun and moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Light afternoon shade may be beneficial where summers are very hot. Removal of spent flowering stems keeps the plants looking neat, and may extend the flowering period. Avoid locations with heavy winter moisture. Aspen fleabane is an excellent choice for a sunny spot near the front of a mixed border, and also performs well in rock gardens or containers. If cut when fully open, its blooms are lovely and long-lasting in the vase.
