Boltonia

Boltonia asteroides

Looking almost like a tall baby's breath, boltonia is a large, late summer showstopper in the perennial border. Also known as white boltonia and white doll's daisy, its 1-inch-diameter daisy-like blooms may be white or light pink. Cut it back in early summer to promote a sturdier branched plant that requires no staking.

Bluestar

Amsonia is one of those plants that will make people stop in their tracks and ask what it is. At its peak in mid- to late spring, amsonia is adorned by stunning clusters of powder blue flowers. The show doesn't stop there, however. Its mound of foliage remains attractive all summer long, and as fall approaches, it turns a lovely golden hue. Although the seed pods that develop are attractive, remove them before they mature to prevent self-seeding.
