Bloom Description: This tall (up to 6 feet) easy-to-grow, native north american wildflower bears countless starry, daisy-like white, pink or purple blooms with yellow centers in late summer and early fall. Tolerates dry soil, heat and humidity, is deer-resistant, and makes a nice background for informal perennial or wildflower gardens
Pests and Diseases: Diseases: anthracnoserustpowdery mildewfungal leaf spot
Propagation: Propagate by seed, division or separation - divide in spring or fall every 2 to 4 years to maintain vigor and control spread. Sow seed in cold frame in fall. Germinates readily. Seeds from 'snowbank' do not breed true.
Notes for Identification: Plants grown in part shade or rich soil or exposed to wind will likely need staking. To control height and reduce the need for staking with no delay of blooming, cut plants back by a half to two thirds in early summer. Or cut plants back by a third in midsummer, which also limits height but delays blooming. If plants are sturdy, they can be left overwinter and cut back in spring. But if they are floppy, cut them back to the ground. Divide every 4 to 5 years to control spread deer resistant non-aggressive - may spread quickly in moist, sandy soil or clay soil, but is not overly aggressive.
