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.
